The name of the Rainbow Snake in the Dreamtime myths of the aboriginal Australians. 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.
