Hailing from the island of Zanzibar, the Popobawa is an evil bat spirit with homosexual tendencies. Mostly, it visits men at night while they sleep. Then it sodomizes them. The creature is both intelligent and cunning, and makes sure that word of its attack is spread, or it threatens the victim with another attack. Its name is Swahili in origin, meaning “bat-wing.” However, this doesn’t refer to the form of the creature itself, which is said to be liable to change. The creature itself is usually described as a ghost with gigantic bat wings and an enormous penis. At times, the creature is thought to be a shapeshifter that appears to be human by day. It usually attacks men inside their homes, leading many to sleep outdoors. Attacks can last for up to an hour. It is said to be able to possess its victims.
