The Black Water (Negro D'Agua) is a cryptid that comes from Brazil's folklore. It is said to be a dark merperson like figure.

Appearance[]

The Black Water is said to resemble a muscular dark figure. It has scales on his body with a fin on the top of his head. He also has webbed fingers and toes. It has webbed feet which helps it swim very well, and can breathe underwater.

The Legend[]

Legend has it that Black Water lives in several rivers. Speaking with its laughter, black, bald, and duck's hands and feet, Black Water drops the fishermen's canoe if they refuse to give a fish. In some places in Brazil, there are still fishermen who, when going fishing, take a bottle of cachaça and throw it into the river, so that they do not have their vessel turned. According to Black Water Legend, it often appears to fishermen and other people in a river. This is a very common story among riverine people, especially in the Midwest region of Brazil, widespread among fishermen, many of whom claim to have seen it.
