A Rainbow Serpent that has a large tail fish and lives in the lakes and pools In mountains. The Khabi people of Queensland believe that it travels using the arch of a rainbow and a glimpse of it can been seen when a rainbow appears. It is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. It created the formation for gullies, rivers and billabongs. He is known to sleep in the mud during the dry season and flies to the sky as a rainbow sending down rain to help life re-grow during the wet season. He has a fascination for anything that is iridescent. Dhakhan protects its people but it does punish those that break the law.
