Extra info for 101 Amazing Mythical Beasts and Legendary Creatures
64. Glawackus: the lumberjacks of early 20th century North America say this creature looked like a cross between a bear, a lion and a panther. Said to have attacked livestock in Connecticut and Massachusetts, the animal has never been caught despite a number of expeditions to find it. 65. Nimerigar: according to the Shoshone people who inhabit the Rocky Mountains in North America, a race of aggressive people called the Nimerigar lived around the Wind River in Wyoming; they were said to fire poisoned arrows at anyone who approached, using tiny well-crafted bows.
101. Slenderman: some people will tell you that Slenderman is an invention of the internet - and as mythical creatures go, that would be quite interesting by itself. However, legends of a tall, thin skeletal figure have persisted for years across many cultures, even if they don’t have the abilities that current Slenderman mythos attributes - being able to cause Slender Sickness for instance. Said to sleep on a bed of dirt taken from a fresh grave, or to inhabit a fetid well near to his intended victims, Slenderman is a truly terrifying mythical beast worthy of inclusion on any list of creatures of legend.
Boo Hag: in South Carolina and Georgia, people speak in hushed tones of the Boo Hag - a creature much like a vampire, although gaining sustenance from one’s breath rather than one’s blood. As they have no skin of their own, they will often steal it from their victim, wearing it for as long as it will hold out. You may only be aware that you have been visited by the Boo Hag if you wake up and feel short of breath - or of course if you wake up and you are missing your skin! 68. Soucouyant: people of Dominica, Guadeloupe and Trinidad tell of an old woman who lives at the edge of a village but who sheds her skin at night, turning into a fireball to seek victims.
