Cuchivilu- Chile myth: a half pig half snake, aquatic creature. When the fisherman would put in the fishing lines and take them out, full of fish, the cuchivilu would jump in it, destroy it, and eat all the fish. That part if water would then be cursed and no more fish would ever be caught there. This creature was actually based on the elephant seal.
INVUNCHE. He is a child stolen at birth to become doorman in a witchs secret cavern. He is raised naked and fed upon human flesh. He is transformed into a deformed and hairy monster with one leg behind his back that makes it impossible for him ever to flee the cavern. Upon reaching adulthood he feeds upon goats flesh. Invunche utters ugly grunts in place of speech. When he goes in search of food it is on three feet, getting along in leaps and letting out bloodcurdling yells.
