A water bull from the folklore of the Manx people of the Isle of Man. It was similar to the Tarbh Uisge but less vicious and it lived in the lowland pools and swamps rather than the ocean. It was a black bull with fiery nostrils. It would emerge from the pools and swamps to mate with the cattle on farms. Its calf when it reached adulthood would cause trouble and be a nuisance to farmers.
