A chameleon from the tales of Cameroon. The sky gods sent chameleon to Earth to tell humans the good news that they are currently immortal. However the chameleon was too slow in his travels to Earth. Snake got there more speedily and told an incorrect message due to his jealousy of Wute. He stated that the people were mortal and there was no afterlife. When Wute came and delivered his message, people did not believe him and said that he was a liar. Wute left and returned to heaven. The gods discovered that snake and Wute had given different messages. As punishment Snake and all his kind were to be feared by humans. Since people believed that they were mortal this came true.
