In the high mountains of Ecuador exists the legend of Zhiro; it is said to be a missing link between man and monkey who inhabits the forests of the Andes mountains, and is used to chase the local people in order to kidnap and mislead them. Its name comes from the Quichua word: zhiru, which is used to refer to an undefined color associated with that of the character’s fur.
