A deep sea water monster from the myths of Melanesia. A woman once gave birth to a snake. She loved her baby but she hid it knowing her father would be most upset. She then had another baby, born a human boy. Her father was pleased with the baby. While attending it one day, he saw what he thought was an ordinary snake near his son. He killed the snake chopping it into small pieces. Later it rained and the snake rejuvenated its body to live again. Its father killed it again and then cooked it up into a stew. All at the stew of Walutahanga except its mother and aunt. As a result these two were blessed and protected by the snake.
