Macan Gadungan

by Micha F. Lindemans
A 'were-tiger' in Javanese legend. It has the body of a tiger but the spirit of a man. It is said that a man's soul can leave his body during sleep. If the man has a smooth upper lip, without the dimple in the middle, he must be a were-tiger. Most men do not know that they become tigers at night, but other can change themselves into a tiger by magic.
