The Piasa is said to have the legs and face of a bear, green parrot wings, and a long scaly tail that can wrap around itself three times. A native American tribe has a legend of how the monster attacked villages. Then one day a brave chieftain named Ouatoga (EW-ah-to-gah)prayed to his gods and stood right in front of the Piasa's cliff where it could see him. The brave chieftain stood there as the Piasa came flying at him. Then, when the beast was in range, the chieftain's warriors leaped from the bushes nearby, shot arrows at it and killed it.
