A-Mi-Kuk is a legendary creature from Inuit mythology. This monster is known from the Bering strait of Alaska. A-Mi-Kuk is described as a huge, heavy creature with slimy moist skin, and instead of legs it has four human-like arms and hands which are for locomotion and to capture prey. It is also said to be capable of burrowing underground and emerge in inland lakes. Supposedly, it preys mostly on fishermen and people foolish enough to bathe in the sea but have also been said to consume large quantities of fish and seabirds.
