This was a strange creature that was hunted by man in Patagonia. It was a mammal that walked on four legs with a furry body and a snout looking like a badger or bear like animal. Bizarrely it carried its young on its back and protected them by covering them in its tail. Hunters of the area would dig pits for the Su to fall into. The hunters would then find the helpless Su which could not climb out of the hole and was killed. The Su were known to be quite violent but while in the hole before death they would kill their young rather than allow the hunters to kill them.
