J is for… Jarjacha
The Jarjacha is a long-necked, four-legged nocturnal animal with glowing eyes. It only eats incestuous people. Its mocking call – jar-jar-jar-jar-jar – echoing in the mountains of Peru is a sign that someone in the village has been Up To No Good, and the guilty parties are duly sought out and punished.
Oh my a Long legged beast!
Okay, I need Source for this one. This HAS to be in my guide
“Apuntes para el folklore Peruano”, Bustamante 1943. 🙂
