Boraro, The

   From Tukano Indian mythology, of the upper Amazon. They are the spirits of the forest, who are tall with hairy chests, huge phalluses, ears that stick forward, and feet that point backward. If they fall, they have great difficulty getting up since they have no knee joint. If you see one carrying a stone hoe, run away quickly, he is looking for someone to eat.

The writer's dictionary of science fiction, fantasy, horror and mythology. 2014.
