The Dungavehooter is a mammalian creature from the tales of the lumberjacks of North America. It lived in Maine and in the upper peninsular of Michigan. It has a similar shape to an alligator but it has no mouth. Its nostrils are very large and has a stumpy legs and a short powerful tail. It makes no noise except a snort. It preys on the drunk rum-filled lumberjacks by hiding behind a bush. When a person stumbles by, the Dungavenhooter leaps out and knocks its prey to the ground with its tail. The Dungavenhooter then jumps up and down on its victim until gases are produced which it inhales in through its large nostrils.
