WHAT ARE MUWAS and/or MAWAS?

by Christine B.

There have been hundreds of sightings of beings that are considered “Big Foots” throughout the world. In the jungles of Malaysia there have been many discoveries of the creature they refer to as the Mawa. Witnesses report it being approximately 10 feet tall, it is a bipedal (walks on two feet) and has black fur all over its body. The Mawa feeds on fish and orchards, which are found in abundance in Malaysia. A similar creature has also been reported in the Philippines and is referred to as a Muwa.

The reported sightings date back to 1871. In 1995 in Johor, Malaysia giant footprint tracks were discovered. The footprints indicated that the creature that made the tracks had only four toes.

In 2005 three workers that were clearing a property in Malaysia saw a family of Mawa that consisted of two adult creatures and two children. They were seen walking near the Kincin River. A close examination of the area produced large footprints revealing that bipedal creatures had truly been there.

In 2006 another footprint was found and the photograph of it was published in many Malaysian Newspapers. This inspired an official expedition by governmental authorities from Johor. Their goal was to document evidence of the creature’s existence. In April of 2006 a creature named “Orang Mawas” was reportedly captured and the find was published in the Johor newspaper, the Berita Harian. However, Johor officials denied the report.

So, do these creatures really exist? There have been too many eye witness sightings of them and footprint evidence for their existence to be a hoax. Like the discovery of the giant apes, more evidence must be accumulated for the scientific community to believe. The rest of us don’t need more than what they have already discovered to believe that the Muwa and the Mawa walk our planet.

The photo below is of a reproduction of what science believes to be a Neanderthal man. It is a species that is believed to have been extinct for thousands of years, but is it really? It looks to me to be very similar to Big Foot creatures. Is it possible that these illusive creatures are ancestors of Neanderthal man and that they are NOT in fact extinct?

If this is the case, then why have these creatures not evolved as we have? It’s in interesting puzzle.

Hi Christine:

Great read on what is, was and maybe. I believe a frog that incubates its young in their stomach has just possibly emerged from left field, giving DNA a positive role. My question is when will Bigfoot learn to use social media, a noble aim for education. I’m sure Bigfoot would top the ratings chart, and if she/he could write then of cause they would become hub dingers. A toast to a new species or just an old one that was shy of the media. Love the possibilities!!!

Very interesting hub. Like you said, there is to much evidence for this to be a hoax.
