East Indian - A monster in Papua New Guinea. Totoima married a mortal woman and they mated, both in human form, producing children which were promptly eaten by their father who reverted to the form of a boar when they were born. When twins were born, he ate the girl but a shaman saved the boy and inserted the infant into Totoima's body where it grew immediately to manhood and burst out into the world and killed Totoima. In some lore, occasionally called Totoima.
