Half woman, half fish, Yaras seduce men in search of

adventure and riches in the jungle.


Yaras live to sing and don’t have to cook.


(Biologists argue that they are merely manatees sunbathing along

the shores.)


Men inflict all kinds of wounds on the rivers—

wounds cured by songs of the Yaras.


The Yaras offer easy love at any moment to fishermen in need.


Those who taste the Yara’s honey stay in the jungle forever.


A woman anywhere, singing or combing her pubis

could be a Yara.
