Angka: A fabulous bird in the folklore of the Middle East described as having a human face and resembling a Griffin or Simurgh. It was said to inhabit the Kaf Mountains, where it devoured anything living it came across. It was so successful that it hunted everything to extinction, resulting in it's own demise.
(description by Carol Rose from "Giants Monsters & Dragons, an encyclopedia of Folklore, Legend and Myth")
