The Amomongo is a cryptid in the folklore of Philippine.
The Amomongo is described as hairy, man-sized and ape-like with long nails. 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 term may have its roots in the Hiligaynon word amó, which means "ape" or "monkey".
Mt. Kanlaon is a huge mountain located on Negros Occidental island and features many caves where the creature(s) could possibly hide.
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.
Elias Galvez and Salvador Aguilar reported to Mayor Alberto Nicor and the police that they were separately attacked by a “hairy creature with long nails,” on the nights of June 9 and 10, 2008, in Cabungbungan, Brgy. Sag-ang, La Castellana, Philippines.
