From the folklore of the North American lumberjacks, this was an aggressive creature covered in dense fur. It was long and thin and would sleep with its body wound round a trunk of a tree. This made it looks like a fur coat attached to a tree. When a lumberjack tried to lift what they thought was a coat, the Rumptifusel would awake and consume him.

Did you find Rumptifusel interesting? Add it to a role playing fantasy game, action or adventure story or draw your own doodle. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
