*The Bakunawa,"Moon Eater",is a creature from the Philippine mythology. It is believed to be the god of the underworld and depicted as a huge sea serpent or a dragon.According to the myth, it is an enemy of Bathala, the supreme deity of Philippine mythology.Tales about the Bakunawa say that it is the cause of eclipses. During ancient times, Filipinos believed that there was seven moons created by Bathala to light up the sky.The Bakunawa, amazed by their beauty, would rise from the ocean and swallow the moons whole, angering Bathala and causing them to be mortal enemies. To keep the Bakunawa moons from completely being swallowed,ancient Filipinos would go out of their homes with pans and pots, and would make noise in order to scare the Bakunawa into spitting out the moon back into the sky.Some of the people in the villages would played soothing sounds with their musical instruments, in hopes that the dragon would fall into a deep sleep. The brave men of the village hoped that while the dragon was hypnotized by the musical sounds they could somehow slay the dragon. Although the dragon was known as a “moon eater” it was also known as a “man eater”.

_The Bakunawa/ 鮮綠色龍 is also the name of a well known japanese katana.
