This is the name given to a group of Vampires of the Araucanian people from Chile. These were invisible creatures that at times took form. When in their physical form, they appeared as human heads with sharp long fangs. They had oversized ears that were so big they acted as wings enabling the creature to fly. They prey on the sick and old on moonless nights. There are many ways to prevent the entrance of these creatures. One is to invoke a magical chant, another is to make the sign of Soloman on the ground and a third is to lay a piece of cloth on the floor in a certain manner.
