Sometimes he appears in the ravines, he likes to bother the bathers in the river by throwing stones at them, he also throws stones on the roofs of the houses, he plays with the children, hides things and falls in love with pretty girls, bothers them and stalks them. all some with specific names that change from municipality to municipality. To scare him away from the stalking, they must place a treble or dull guitar so that when he comes to play it he leaves because he doesn't like the way it sounds.


    It is said that he is not bad, rather playful, mischievous and mischievous.


    When he appears at night he emits screams that cause fear.
