Amomongo: Phillipine's Bigfoot

Today, November 15, 1935,The United States formalized the establishment of the self-governing Philippine Commonwealth, with Manuel L. Quezon as its president.

Franklin D. Roosevelt (November 14, 1935), Proclamation 2148 on the Establishment of the Commonwealth of the Philippines, The American Presidency Project, University of California at Santa Barbara (specifying, "This Proclamation shall be effective upon its promulgation at Manila, Philippine Islands, on November 15, 1935, by the Secretary of War of the United States of America, who is hereby designated as my representative for that purpose.")

More importantly this is a great segue to exploit U.S./Pilipino history in order to bring up the Pilipino Bigfoot, also known as Amongo

The Amomongo is a creature of Philippine mythology described as hairy, man-sized and ape-like with long nails.[1] The term may have its roots in the Hiligaynon word amó, which means "ape" or "monkey". Residents of La Castellana in Negros Occidental refer to the creature as a "wild monkey" that lives in caves near the foot of Mt. Kanlaon. The creature is said to have attacked two residents of the settlement and disemboweled goats and chickens in the area, for the purpose of eating the entrails. Source Wikipedia.

Wait! I know what your next question is, is the Amomongo on the Bigfoot Lunch Club’s AKA Bigfoot World Map? Of course fans, of course. Check it out on the map below, or click on the larger full-screen map here.
