Curupira


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.



The Curupira is a forest spirit in Tupi mythology.
It takes the form of a wild human boy with flaming red hair and green teeth. But its most startling characteristic is that its feet are turned to face backwards.
Its raison d'ĂȘtre is to protect the forest from the destructive habits of man. It happily tolerates hunting for food but is infuriated by those who hunt for the pleasure of it and will lay traps and confuse them so that they become eternally lost in the forest.
