Mapinguari não tem "junta" e faz medo andando nu, gritando pelas matas. Mapinguari é todo cabeludo, tem só um olho no meio da testa. Ele grita muito. Dá cada grito horrible, quebra o pescoço e chupa o "tutano" das pessoas. Ele o protector da mata, se a pessoa maltratar a mata, ele pega, açoita e mete debaixo das raizes.
Mapinguari doesn't have joints, walks naked in the woods, shouting and scarying everyone. Mapinguari is completely hairy, he has just one eye in the middle of the forehead. He grunts a lot. Whilst horribly shouting, he breaks people's necks and chew their bones. He is the protector of the forest, and if someone mistreats the forest, Mapinguari tears him apart and buries the remains under the roots.
