Mo-o Mo-ko

In Polynesia the dragon is called Mo-o and Mo-ko. Their use of words in traditions showed that they had in mind animals like crocodiles and alligators. And sometimes the name referred to any monster of great mythical powers belonging to the man-destroying class. Might eels, immense sea turtles, large fish of the ocean and fierce sharks were all called Mo-o!
