Australian Aboriginal Mythology

The Dreaming Gods and Spirits of Oz


Anindilyakwa Demons

The Night Dwellers

These are Vampire Demon Spirits. Or Demon Vampire Spirits. Or even Spirit Vampire Demons. Another good reason not to travel on your own at night.

These thin spindly demons have long spindly teeth with which to inflict their long, spindly bites. However, being cowardly, they will only approach their victims from behind, creeping up on unsuspecting night travelers.

So expect everything. Especially a bite on the back of the neck in the dark.
