THE BIG SNAKE WITH HORNS AND WATTLES

Description: In the Greek folklore of Cappadocia, there were many interesting stories with religious outlines that blend in with episodes from childhood and people's lives. One of them is this small story about the encounter between the monstrous dragon that infests a cave where many people sought after plants and how no one dares to go near the cave anymore, even though he was defeated by St. George. The storyteller is one of the best speakers of Farasa Cappadocian.
