The Washoriwe is a pterosaur-like cryptid from Kurupira tepui, South America. It's quite an obscure creature, especially when compared to other pterosaur cryptids like the Kongamato and Ropen.

It is described as a pterosaur-like flying creature. It is said their wingspans can be over 20 feet. It possesses the huge crest on the back of its head and a long, sharp beak. It is only seen during the day, so it is believed to be diurnal. In the local folklore, it is the mother of all vampire bats.
