An ogre (feminine: "ogress") is a monster that is a large, hideous, man-like being that eats any creature weak enough to fall prey to it.   Ogres are often very large and tall and have a disproportionately large head, abundant hair, unusually coloured skin ranging from orange to yellow to various shades of brown, a voracious appetite and a strong body.   They have some regenerative ability.
