Sigbin - Creature of Philippines


Sigbin is a both crypto and a mythological creature of Philippines. Its appearance is said to be similar to the Chupacabra and Tasmanian devil, although with spotty fur. It supposedly has a wide mouth with large fangs.



Sigbin according to mythological descriptions is said to come out at night to suck the blood of victims from their shadows. The creature walks backward with its head lowered between its hind legs. It resembles a hornless goat, emits a very nauseating smell and possesses a pair of very large ears which are capable of clapping like a pair of hands. It is also claimed to issue forth from its lair during Holy Week, looking for children that it will kill for the heart, which is made into an amulet.

It is also believed that there are families known as Sigbinan ("those who own Sigbin"), who possess the power to command them. The Aswang is said to keep it as a pet, along with another mythical creature, a bird known as the Wakwak. The Sigbin is said to bring wealth and luck to its owners. In the Eastern Visayas they are also known as the Amamayong.

  1. i was thinking that ... chupacabra and sigbin are only one creature..
    both of them have the similar body parts..
    *longer back legs than front
    *both have big canine teeth
    *they are both mythical
    *they are both blood suckers
    hope this comment will be noticed..

  3. i saw a sigbin or something looks like it once in 1988 while walking/going home @2am, near the american cemetery in fort bonifacio going to jusmag village. That night while i was going home( I was on the right side of the street, near the gutter) I saw what it appears to be a big dog ( more like a great dane type ) on the other side. It was walking backwards and sideways ( don't know how to describe it ) towards me and has long pointed ears. I walk fast away from it, always ahead of it not looking back at it. after about 500 meters or so, I look back and it was gone but was surprised to see a tall strange man walking instead. Scared the s%^&*t out of me. I just continued to walk fast and prayed. I came home safely..I was 17..
