Pluck Tongues - Legends and Myths


According to people who have seen it, the Arranca Tongues would be like a large Gorilla, but much larger than a Gorilla or a man.

According to them, one of their main foods is the tongue, which can be as much of animals as oxen, horses, goats or even of people. He usually attacks his victims at night, killing them and removing their tongue to eat, which is why he is called Arranca Languages. This legend is very common in the state of Goiás and in the Araguaia River region.
