Aigamuchas- Plural

These are Ogres of South Africa in the mythology of the Khosian people. They have a human like appearance but bear fangs and large hands and feet. They also have eyes, not on their heads but on the heels of their feet. They inhabit the Kalahari Desert and eat humans. As with most Ogres they are stupid and easily fooled. Once the mischievous trickster god Jackal was being chased by the Aigamucha but he spread tobacco dust in his pursuit. This irritated the eyes of the Aigamucha enabling Jackal’s escape.
