Great Lynx

Great Lynx

Among the Ojibwa people of North America, this is another name for the water monster Mishipzhiw. It is described as being a huge cat-like creature with a saw-toothed backbone and very long and flexible tail with which it can catch it, victims, dragging them to a watery grave.
