You see, according to information circulated on social media, the animal was being held in a secret laboratory at an undisclosed location in the state of Pahang – a region encompassing the heartland of the Malay Peninsula. And disturbingly, its appearance was unlike anything known to science.

No larger than a hand, the alleged creature appeared to be some sort of tiny newborn, blind and vulnerable. Its skin was pale and wrinkled, with a few wisps of black hair on its head. It had a tail, claws and fangs, too. However, its face was distinctly human.

The way in which the phenomenon captured public attention may be partly explained by the legacy of traditional Malay folklore, much of which actually originated in Pahang – an area corresponding to an ancient polity known as the Old Pahang Kingdom. Indeed, Malay folklore offers a wealth of stories concerning a wide variety of supposedly magical creatures and supernatural beings.
