And just because I can’t resist, here are a couple more from that list I mentioned yesterday:

Mimi (Australian Aboriginal) – Extremely elongated humanoid that has to live in rock crevasses to avoid blowing away

AAUUGHH!

Lidérc (Hungary) – Magical chicken that transforms into a humanoid

Magical…wha?  That does…huh?  HELP!  Shudder.  But as usual, the French have the right idea.  Here’s a little Gallic palate cleanser for you:

Related…here’s a list of mythical creatures from Wikipedia.  Do not read unless you want nightmares.  Some of these are stone cold FREAKY, yo!  A couple of examples:

Abura-akago (Japanese) – Oil-drinking infant

Blemmyae (Medieval Bestiary) – Headless humanoid with face in torso

Chonchon (Mapuche) – Disembodied, flying head

Oh, it goes on…and on.
