COTW#195: The Ahool by Trendorman COTW#195: The Ahool by Trendorman
The Ahool or the Athol is a winged cryptid Some portrayed the creature as a giant bat while others claim it is flying primate. It was first reported by Dr. Ernest Bartels in 1925. It is said to live in the deepest parts of the jungles of Java, and can be found across most of Indonesia. Sub-species can be found on the nearby island of New Guinea in the form of the Ropen, a cousin to the Ahool. The Ropen has a long snout, large wings and a long thin crest. It has a chimp's face, large dark eyes, red skinned wings, large claws on its forearms, and is covered in grey fur. It is said to have a wingspan of 18 to 28 feet, or 6 to 9 meters. That is 3 to 4.5 times the size of the largest bat known to man, the flying fox. Although it mainly eats fish, it will occasionally attack humans. One scientist theorized that the creature may be related to another cryptid, the Kongamato. But its description describes more of a bat-like creature than a reptile-like one. It may be closer related to Orang Bati.
