A creature from Japanese myth. The name translates as ‘Net Cutter’ and is said to be a cross between a bird a lobster and a snake. It has the body of a snake with the head of a bird and the claws of a lobster. The Amikir swim through the air. It would pester people by cutting holes in mosquito nets in people’s houses as well fishing nets and in clothes hanging up to dry. Some say they are the size of a small dog or cat whilst others say they grow up to the size of a baby. They predominantly live in water and are rarely seen by people. Some claim that the Amikiri can even transform into a person for a short period of time.
