The Ramanga is a living vampire found in the legens of the Betsileo tribe of Madagascar.
Some legends say that that Ramanga is a person that performs disgusting services for the chief of the tribe. The Ramanga was expected to eat the nail clippings and drink the blood of people in high standing within the tribes. If there wasn’t a Ramanga, the clippings were preserved until the return of the creature.
The Ramanga was more of a ceremonial creature.
