Reminds me of another animal, the Tukkae. I'm on a year holiday in northern Thailand and I lost count the number of people who claimed the Tukkae lizard (whose call sounds a human saying "took-A") hands are so sticky that if it comes into contact with people it will peel their skin right off when they try to remove it. If I ever mention the name Tukkae, people always dive right into this story. They're convinced these horrors are true, yet the interesting part is nobody seems to know anyone it's ever happened to.
