A name for the Rainbow Serpent of the Dreamtime animals of Australian mythology. Muit is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. It created the landscape as it rose from the depths of its habitat. 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. Muit helps its people by sending down cooling rains during times of intense heat.
