The Migas is a mythological and sighted squid-like creature of Central Africa with a head similar to a gorgon and tentacles where the tail fin would be on its fish-like body, similar to that of a mermaid. It is similar to the kraken of Norse mythology.

The Migas, according to many accounts, is believed to possess human-like features such as legs. However, the creature does not commonly leave the water, and finds its food source by sucking blood and brains out of infant human beings by hiding among rocks and striking out at passing canoes for an easy meal.
