South American - A chief of the Guarani tribe. Father of Tacuaree. When his daughter left home to meet the man she loved, Saguaa followed her, stopping at frequent intervals to put his ear to the ground to follow the sound of her footsteps. When he became exhausted and rested with his ear still to the ground, the ear put down roots and became the timbo tree, the fruit of which is ear-shaped. In some references, known as Saguaa.
