The spikey-backed Meshupeshu, or Great Earth Serpent, is a malignant being who lives under the lake and creates some of the nastiest storms that sweep its waters. Although it is generally believed that there is only one Meshupeshu, the slaying of the beast (and its transformation into Meshupeshu Mail) has not slowed down the rate of nasty weather, and it has been spotted subsequent to its own death. It is hypothesized that after the Meshupeshu is killed, another is born, or that it somehow regenerates. The Meshupeshu attacks with claws, or teeth, or its massive spiked tail. It can also sink ships and flood villages with its control over the lake. Its natural enemies are the Thunderbirds.
