Flying Head

North American - A monster, in the lore of the Iroquois. This monster, in the form of a head with huge wings and sharp fangs, killed and ate all animals including those domesticated by the tribes. When it saw a squaw swallow some hot chestnuts, it thought to do the same but swallowed the red-hot stones of the fire and was killed. At times, known as Flying Head.
