(say that three-times fast 😉 )
From Cantabria mythology in northern Spain, the Ramidreju is a weasel-like creature said to be born once every hundred years from a weasel or marten. It has a very long body, snake-like, and green-colored fur. Its eyes are yellow, and its nose pig-like, which it uses to dig very deep holes.

Ramidreju is known for finding gold, silver and jewels as it digs and hunts, and for this reason it is prized and sought after in Cantabria tales and folklore.

Apparently, goblins love them, and train these creatures to seek out veins of gold in the earth (greedy goblins). Ramidreju fur is also sought after for healing potions, making this animal a rare and desired item. (poor Ramidreju, hide from the greedy feigns that pursue you!)

Instant wealthy, anyone? Get yourself a Ramidreju!

And with enough gold, you could dress like Charlize Theron in The Huntsman!

  1. Ooo this creature is so cool! I may have to put these in my books. ^ ^ They’d be really handy for my silver miners. I’d like to see one then I’d set it free.
