Tlanusi - Cherokee mythology: a gigantic leech the size of a house. It lived in a river in North Carolina. It supposedly crawled into the water, which bubbled and foamed. The water then erupted into a water spout and washed its prey down that was standing on the bank. It ate the ears and nose of its victims.
