In the Philippine Mythology, The Segben is a flesh-eating creature than can kill by a mere touch ot their tongue.

Except for their large round ears, it has an ambiguous appearance. People have problems identifying which end is the head and which one is the tail as they can run fast either forward or backwards.

The Segben attacks their victims by jumping on them. Once it licks their victims, or at the touch of their tongues in the skin, their victims die and the Segben proceeds to eat them. People hear the ears or the Segben flapping as they approach. As a preparation, they carry spices and sharp knives which keepsthe Segben off.
