Lou Carcolh is a beast found in French folklore and is described as a large snail-like serpent with a large shell and hairy tentacles. It resides in a cave below the town Hastingues where nobody was brave enough to approach it [1].
It is said that the Lou Carcolh devours people who are unwary enough as it drags them down into its cave with its tentacles [1].
