"The manananggal is described as scary, often hideous, usually depicted as female, and always capable of severing its upper torso and sprouting huge bat-like wings to fly into the night in search of its victims."
It was at least four times bigger than the large bats with about a 7 meters (about 20 foot) wing span, and it glided while they flapped. It swooped down to the water, and on the wing plucked a 60-70cm (about 2 foot) fish effortlessly out the water, carrying it off, thrashing, in one claw.
