Curupira | Brazil
Jungle genie with bright red hair and backwards feet.
- Curupira is a blend of West African and European fairies, and was once considered a demon.
- The name comes from the Tupi language, which translates to covered in blisters.
- You’ll be able to spot this creature from a mile away. He has bright red/orange hair, usually resembles a man or dwarf, and has feet turned backward.
- How can this little guy be threatening? He creates illusions and produces sounds to drive their victim to go crazy.
- Don’t worry…they only go after poachers and hunters; those who take from the jungle they live in.
