This is an ancient lizard from the Andaman Islands. He mated with the civet cat to produce offspring which were half-lizard and half-cat. These beings were very dexterous and could climb mountains easily. These creatures bred with each other and were the ancestors of the first humans. This story is remembered in a ceremony where tribe people decorate themselves with tattoos to resemble their cat-lizard ancestors.
