Is a giant turtle, mother of all the chelonians of the Amazonian jungle that stays still for a very long time, with plant growing underneath its body and manages to deceive its victim that without doubt or fear come close to it.

When it moves it causes the earth and water to shake, simulating a small tremor, it is said that it never dies, that it has always existed.
