A fabled monster of the Tharawal of New South Wales. The creature, which resides in caves in mountainous country, has very short arms and legs and has hair all over his body but none on its head. It cannot run very fast, but it defecates as it runs and the abominable smell of its ordure overcomes its victim so that he is easily captured.
