The Australian Aborigine Mythology speaks of a Deity-Spirit called The Bahloo. He is also known as ''The Moon Man'' for His association with The Moon and Darkness. Bahloo is also associated with Reptiles, and it is He who One would invoke for assistance with a bite. However, Bahloo is also problematic to Man. It it were left up to ''Him'' – Man and The Earth would remain forever in darkness. But The Goddess Yhi (The Sun), mandates that ''He'' can only be present in The Sky for a certain period. Sometimes to punish Bahloo, Yhi causes Her ''shadow'' to obscure The Moon – even when He is allowed to exist.
