A dangerous insect of Samoa that has one tooth or spike the size of a man’s finger. It punctures its human victims and poisons them. Once bitten, medicine must be given immediately otherwise the victim will die. No visible wound is shown but once medicine is taken the bite shows more prominently. The Nifoloa is intelligent and can stalk its victims. It can also listen out for healers who are searching for the ingredients for the medicine and the insect will strip up all the medicinal plants the healer is looking for.
