Drawing of the mohán by an unknown artist.

Other names: Moan, tigre mono
Country reported: Colombia

The mohán is a folkloric creature of Colombia. It has various different forms in different legends, but the one singled out by George Eberhart as a possible cryptid is a muscular humanoid with coarse facial features, which is covered in hair, especially on the head. It is said to be capable of holding its breath underwater for a significant amount of time, and seeks out lakes or rivers as refuges when disturbed, although it lives in caverns. It also enjoys drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, and assaulting young women.[1]
