Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime:

The Wagyl is a creature from Dreamtime, when the lands were new and inhabited by ancestral figures and creatures. Wagyl is a huge snakelike being, charged with the creation and protection of waterways and wildlife. Wagyl’s serpentine body, sliding across the land, carved out the passages for rivers, pushing aside the mud and rock to make way for the life-giving waters to spring forth and flow in his wake. When he grew weary and coiled to rest, the indentation of his body left room for lakes and bays, and the water pooled and gleamed and mirrored the sun. As his scales scraped fell loose on the land, they grew into woodlands, cascading into the valleys that his tail swiped from the earth.
