Many cultures have a belief in shapeshifting in some form. Shapeshifting is the ability of a being or creature to completely transform its physical form or shape. The Aswang reportedly has the ability to combine various elements from different creatures.
In this episode of The Crypto Files, we take a look at the Aswang and explore some of the characteristics and behavior of this cryptid.
Here is the episode (ep. 25)
Aswangs can also be befriended, they can talk to you like any other human: they laugh and/or cry, get angry/sad, get hurt/humiliated and feel scared and envious. These creatures are said not harm their friends and neighbors.
In the video we mentioned a few ways to fend off an aswang but here are a few more.
They can be killed using a whip made entirely of a stingray's tail. It is said they can not enter into holy grounds such as churches, mosques, and temples. Decapitation is also a way to destroy an aswang.
