A Chilean Vampuric being that has many different descriptions from various Chilean cultures. In some parts of Chile the Colo-Colo is described as a large lived with over sized clawed feet. In southern Chile the Huilliche, tribe describe the creature with the body of a long mammal much like that of a rat but with the head of a rooster. The Colo-Colo hovers over sleeping people and sucks all the saliva from their victims who subsequently suffer from fevers. It would bite either their tongue to slowly drain the life force from them or it would sip away their saliva. Either way the victim was said to die within a couple of weeks and would be slowly reduced to a Zombie like state in their slow death. Some say that the Colo-Colo kills its victims by sticking its long tongue up the nose of the sleeping person and eating their brain.
The Colo-Colo was said to sound much like that of a baby crying. If one heard such a sound in their house or could smell something like human feces or a dead animal in their house then it was likely that the Colo-Colo had come there. The Colo-Colo would only come out of its hiding place to suck away the life of their victims in their sleep.
