Boitatah

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is an amazing creature from our folklore. 'Boi' means 'Snake', in indian language Tupi guarani, and Tah means 'fire'. Guarani uses repetition to anphasis the language, so, Boitatah means a very large snake who is made of fire. The luminescent points have to be explained: In Some places people say that the points are the eyes of boitatah's victms (eeek!), and some other places, and i prefer this way of explanation,the history is: some night the moon was so bright that the boitatah wanted to eat its, but the snake is a slyther reptile, and canot manage a way to fly... so he tried to jump, and opened his mouth... and have bitten a large piece of the night, with the stars inside. Nice story, I think
