Stuhać is a demonic mythical creature in Serbian mythology, recorded in Herzegovina.[1] Though its name is similar with zduhać, there is no actual similarity.

Stuhać lives in high mountains and barren areas; how it looks isn't described, however it is known that it wears clutters made of human ligaments on its legs, so that it wouldn't slip on mountain precipices.[1] If its clutter broke, he would pull ligaments from someone's legs to make new one.[1]
