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. Entering their homes through keyholes or cracks in the walls, she sucks people’s blood from them whilst they sleep. As well as consuming the blood for nourishment, she also trades for evil witchcraft powers with a demon known as Bazil who lives in a silk cotton tree. It is possible to catch one of these creatures by heaping rice at the village crossroads; the Soucouyant will begin to gather it up grainby-grain at night - a task which takes so long that she can be caught in the act the very next day.

82. Glas Gaibhnenn: This mythical beast comes from Irish folklore. A white cow covered in green spots, she is said to yield profuse quantities of milk for its owner. 83. Selkie: North of mainland Scotland lie two remote island groups called the Orkney and the Shetland isles. Sharing similar folklore, both communities tell of creatures who live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. If a man finds a Selkie’s skin which she has shed to come on land, she will now be under his power and will become his wife - although as her true home is in the sea she will spend many hours gazing at the ocean.

Giant: Giants appear in many different folklores. In Greek mythology in particular, they were said to possess great strength - although there is debate as to whether this meant they were large in size. Some representations of the Greek giants - who were said to have battled the Olympian gods show they have snakes for legs, although this isn’t mentioned in classical texts. After being vanquished from the surface of the world, the giants were buried under volcanos, and it is they who cause them to erupt.
