The Tikbalang is a humanoid horse from Philippine mythology, which lurks in the mountains and forests.


The creature is said to be able to shapeshift to human form. According to the myth, all tikbalangs are male, with the female counterpart being the Anggitay, which resembles a female centaur (sometimes with a unicorn horn, for distinction).
