A great Dragon from the legends of Spain. It is similar to the Tarasque of Southern France, but this flying serpent would eat children of the Spanish community. This Dragon is still remembered in the feast day of Corpus Christi in Redondela, in Pontevedra. An effigy of the Dragon is paraded around the streets with small children inside its belly.
