Drekavac (literally screamer or screecher) is a mythical creature from the mythology of South Slavs, mostly present in folk tales in Bosnia and Herzegovina. People that believe that they heard the specific sound of this creature mostly have various descriptions of it. Their experiences and fears are usually only aural but in almost all stories I have heard, the sound of this creature is characterized with an incredible possibility to quickly transform, move fast in open space, and have a wide range of forms of occurrence.
