This is a true story at a place west of Walytjatjara (north of Kalka) in South Australia. A child is riding on his father's shoulders and sees a figure in the distance. He sees the mamu (spirit), the mamu is sleeping and the father tells the child to watch the mamu who is lying in a wiltja, shelter, with a fire. The mamu has no teeth but wakes up and smells the child, looks around and sees him, but the father returns just in time.
