Agunua

Pacific Islands - A serpent creator-god of the Solomon Islands. Chief of the figona. He created a woman and they mated to produce a daughter. When the woman grew old she disappeared, returning after she had changed her skin. Her daughter then rejected her, so she resumed her old skin. As a result, humans can no longer renew their youth by sloughing their skins and growing a new one, as snakes do. Sometimes called Agunua, Koevasi or Koevasi.
