“Humanoid or Hoax?” In an Indonesian forest, researchers discover terrifying beasts.

The jenglot is a creature found in Indonesia. It resembles a tiny humanoid doll, and seems to be a creature from modern times, as the first reports of the jenglot’s existence were made in 1997. Till today, however, it is still unclear if the jenglot is really a supernatural creature or merely a hoax, though many Indonesians believe that the jenglot does have mystical powers.

The jenglot is reported to have first mysteriously appeared in Indonesia, in particular, on the island of Java, in 1997. The creature can allegedly be found in all sorts of places, for instance, under the ground, in the trunk of trees, or even on the rooftops of houses. The jenglot is usually said to be several inches tall, and has the appearance of a tiny human being, though with sharp fangs, long nails, and long hair.

This creature is sometimes considered to be a type of vampire as it feeds on blood – either animal or human. The owner of a jenglot has to provide it with drops of blood on a daily basis. If the owner does not provide this sustenance, the people around him/her are said to be struck by misfortune. The blood should not be fed directly to the jenglot but placed close to it. Some allege that the creature comes alive to drink the blood when nobody is around, whilst others claim that the jenglot is able to obtain the nutrients from the blood without even having to come into contact with it.

Some believe that jenglot were once human beings. Tradition states that the creature was an ascetic or hermit who practiced forbidden magic in an attempt to gain eternal life. When the person died, his body was rejected by the earth, so that it would not decompose, and then shrunk to become a jenglot. The jenglot are allegedly found by native shamans after the performance of some magical rituals, though the creature may also appear on its own. Others are of the opinion that the jenglot is a supernatural being that can be captured and tamed by those who have the knowledge to do so. There are also those who assert that the jenglot is a rare animal species that is unknown to science.

As man-made objects, the jenglot is said to not possess any powers of its own. Instead, it is through black magic that these creatures obtain their supernatural powers. It is popularly believed that the jenglot could then serve its master in a variety of ways, for instance, providing protection, functioning as a good luck charm , and even exacting vengeance on his/her enemies.
