A pair of huge serpents, one male and one female, upon which the earth rests. They lie so as to form a cross. Their mouths are below the water at the point where earth and sky meet. When they move they cause earthquakes; when they breathe they cause the winds; if they pant they cause violent storms. They do not fall for they are held up by Magbabáya tominápay.
