The Vietnamese vampire known as the ma c? r?ng in similar to the ASWANG, BRAHMAPARUSH, HANTU LANGSUIR, and the KRAPPA in that it takes on the guise of a flying head dangling its entrails. However, this vampire feeds exclusively off cow dung. It only attacks humans when it cannot find its natural food source. It rips out its victims' throats, but it only does so in anger; the ma c? r?ng never consumes any part of the people it assaults.
