1. a dangerous kind of boogeyman


  • Etnográfica:
    A dangerous monster. Variations, but some constants include that he is extremely tall (7 - 12 ft.), hairy all over, has very big feet (good for running in the swamp and being able to catch people), has an incredible sense of smell, has long fingernails, eats only raw meat, is noisy. Usually said to live back in Wiring Cay, though also cited in other places so that you have to be wary wherever you are. Usually talked about as one individual, but occasionally a group is mentioned, and occasionally an ulak woman. More usually though, it is one ulak man who in stories carries off a human woman.
  • Léxica:
    Borrowed from Miskitu "uhlak," glossed as "gorila" in Heath and Marx.
