“The Telepathic Football”

Region of origin: Calama, Chile

Two children out looking for an escaped pet snake one night encountered a creature they initially thought to be a stray dog. They tried to scare off by throwing rocks at it, instead it drew its attention towards them, where they could seeit was not the dog they had originally assumed it was; hopping rabbit-like on webbed feet and with a body shaped like a rugby football. As it approached the boys, rearing up and walking on two legs the creature began to glow and, telepathically, told them “don’t stare, just run away.” Heeding the voice in their head they fled home, and the creature hasn’t been encountered since.
