Y is for Yasha, Yeren, Yeti, Yowie, and Yuki Onna

Some kind of creature has taken up residence in my chest and sinus passages... I suspect gremlins.  Y's post will be short.  I would have loved to write up something on one of these wonderful creatures, but I just. Don't. Have it in me. Here is the Y list, courtesy of The Phoenixian Book of Creatures

Yasha- A human reincarnated as a vampire bat. (Japanese)

Yeren-  Wild man found in the central and southern mountain regions of China. (Chinese)

Yeti- Supernatural creature that lives in the Himalayan mountains. (Tibetan)

Yowie- Hairy man-beast of the Australian bush. (Australia)

Yuki Onna- A beautiful and deadly snow queen with long hair and snow white skin. (Japanese)

Please take a moment to check out the artwork of Jessica Hook.  It is stunning. 


  1. I love your Y feature! I've written features on a few of these creatures. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I look forward to 'chatting' with you more. :)

  2. The Yeti is the only one I have heard of before. Thanks for sharing...


I'd love to hear your musings :)
