John McKinnon, who journeyed to Borneo to observe orangutans, came across
some humanlike footprints. McKinnon asked his Malay boatman what made them.
""Without a moment's hesitation he replied Batutut," wrote McKinnon, "but
when I asked him to describe the beast he said it was not an animal but a
type of ghost... Batutut, he told me, is about four feet tall, walks
upright like a man and has a long black mane... Like other spirits of the
forest the creature is very shy of light and fire."
