Chichevache

AB88

Chichevache

Region of origin: England

In Middle English bestiaries, this was a creature said to feast only on obedient and faithful wives, so it was perpetually starving due to their scarcity. Its husband-eating counterpart, the Bicorne, however was always depicted as plump and over-stuffed.
