AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINE MYTHOLOGY

The Dreamtime Gods and Spirits of Oz

YRLUNGGUR

Australian God

Also known as YURLUNGUR

The Great Rainbow Snake of the Murngin people

Roused to fury by the smell of menstrual blood, he swallowed the WAWALAG sisters in one angry gulp. But later, at the Annual General Meeting of Snakes and Serpents, he was accused of eating his kin and throwing the good name of snakes into disrepute.

Not one to go against the status quo, YRLUNGGUR admitted his error and offered to make amends. The WAWALAG sisters were promptly thrown up in a heap of vomit, as good as new and demanding compensation. We understand there was an out-of-court settlement. Meanwhile, YRLUNGGUR may now be trading under the name JULUNGGUL.
