A-Mi-Kuk is a legendary creature from Inuit mythology. This monster is known from the Bering strait of Alaska. A-Mi-Kuk is described as a huge and heavy creature with slimy moist skin, and instead of legs this creature has four human like arms and hands, which it uses both to walk upon and to capture its prey. It is also said to be capable of burrowing underground and emerge in inland lakes. Supposedly, it preys mostly on fishermen and people foolish enough to bathe in the sea, but have also been said to consume large quantities of fish and saltwater birds.
