The Mapinguari, Mapinguary or Isnashi, is a legendary cryptid resembling a six-feet tall ground sloth-like creature with red fur living in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil and Bolivia. The name is usually translated as "the roaring animal", "wolf's cape", "pestle hand", "bottle foot", or "the fetid beast."
According to Brazilian stories, the Mapinguari was once an Amazonian shaman who discovered the key to immortality thousands of years ago. He angered the gods and was severely punished as to his discovery, which forced him to be transformed into a wandering beast for the rest of his life.
