Tarasca de Barcelona

Formerly called "Cuca Fera" (Carnival Dragon), is a beast that has a cat's head with human features and the body of a tortoise. It has a double role because it breathes fire in the correfoc fire runs and pyrotechnic shows, while it showers water and sweets in street parades and at official events.
Wonderful

Catalans seem to specialize in diabolical animals. Here in Laroque we have simiots, something between a cat and a monkey. Like the processing of this, nicely contrasty.
