The Tikbalang is one of the most well-known creatures from Filipino folklore. The half-horse half-man, who is the topic of many a bedtime story, resides near gnarled old balete trees, and is notorious for tricking lost travelers in the middle of the night. Legends say you can control the tikbalang if you find and pluck the rare golden hairs from its mane -- at least, if it doesn't eat you first. 🐴
