The Tailypo comes from North American Folklore and is usually told as a ghost story. The beast is typically the size of a dog with bright red (sometimes yellow eyes) and long ears. The most disturbing part of the Tailypo is that it can speak like a man, and it demands its “taily-po” back. It will always repeat its phrase three times before getting angry with its victim. The phrase varies through stories but usually sticks to things like “Taily-po… Taily-po… Give me back my Taily-po…”
After the third time, the Tailypo grows angry and mutilates the unfortunate soul that cannot return its taily-po before burning down the person’s house. The Tailypo generally attacks in heavily wooded areas where its victim would be alone.
