The Mapinguary is a strange beast that inhabits the tropical rain forests of South America. Natives living in the areas said to be frequented by the Mapinguary describe it as a large hairy creature with stringy, matted fur and a single eye in the middle of its forehead, similar to the Cyclops of Greek mythology. They often report that it has a second mouth located in its abdomen which it uses to devour prey on the fly.
This elusive creature is most commonly seen by the native peoples of South America. Those who have been near a Mapinguary universally agree that it is characterized by an extraordinarily foul odor reminiscent of decomposing flesh that attracts a pervasive cloud of flies. This stench is so overpowering that it can render a person ill on the spot and may be a defense mechanism that serves to compensate for the creature's observed lack of speed and agility.
The Mapinguary is said to be openly aggressive towards humans, perhaps as a reaction to man's continuing encroachment into its habitat. Locals say that when the Mapinguary catches somebody, it will use its extraordinary strength to twist off the top of the person's cranium and feast on its hapless victim's brains.
Some scientists speculate that the Mapinguary could be a descendant of giant ground sloths that were thought to have died out some 10,000 years ago, although there is persuasive evidence that some smaller species may have survived into the time of the arrival of the first European explorers.
