Lou Carcolh

Lou Carcolh

In French folklore, Lou Carcolh is a giant mollusc-serpent that has hairy tentacles, a huge shell and leaves a slimy trail behind it. It lived under the town of Hastingue in the region of Les Landes in south-west France. Whoever went near Lou Carcolh became sucked into its carven and eaten.
