Chichinguane

African - In the lore of Mozambique, a girl who lived in a fish. When she was trapped in a river, the fish Chipfalamfula took her into his mouth for safety and she lived in his belly until she was old enough to marry. Then she returned to dry land where she was attacked by ogres. The big fish stopped the river long enough for her to cross over its dry bed and then restarted the flow and drowned her attackers. She met a prince who fell in love with her and married her. In some lore, occasionally known as Chichinguane, Chipfalamfula or Chipfalamfula.
