The Tasmanian name for the fearsome Bunyip of Australian myth. He is a dark hairy creature with long arms and huge claws on his hands. It inhabits billabongs, swamps and other water areas. The Universal Eye will kill anything that enters its domain. Even the young are said to be highly dangerous. The Universal Eye will capture children by howling and then sending a great flood around it‘s habitat. Any adult who touches this water will be turned into a black swan. The flood is so vast that it covers houses and hills. The babies of a flooded village will be left floating on top for the Universal Eye to capture and devour.
