The legend of the Biembien started in the 1700’s. It is said these beings are located in the mountains of Bahoruco, Dominican Republic. The story goes that an African slave and some Indians ran from their Spanish enslavers. After a long time, hiding in the mountains away from any type of civilization, they transformed into wild beings and became legendary.

The Biembiens only language is grunt-like sounds. They are mean, nasty and very unfriendly beings. They do not wear clothes to cover their naked short, deformed and ugly bodies.

These creepy creatures are very agile climbers of both trees and mountains. They travel and attack alone or in groups. Biembiens remain in hiding during the daylight hours, crawling out when the light dwindles. They emerge from their hiding places to search for food. Like the Ciguapa they also leave backward tracks to protect themselves from being discovered. These nasty creatures are known to eat humans, mainly the entrails, and also use humans as sacrifices.

So, if you are walking in the mountains and you hear unusual growls and gurgling and you know it is not your stomach. Run. Do not walk. Remember, here in the Dominican Republic we have no wild animals. If you hear a growl it can only be a roaming Biembien, looking for its next victim.
