An aquatic creature from the folklore of Cyprus. This is a huge crocodile-like creature.  According to the descriptions of eyewitnesses, it looks like something similar to a crocodile or a huge snake. It has a shell, a crest, a mouth full of sharp fangs. He is sometimes called "The Felico Teras" i.e. "friendly monster".

The animal often appears near cities. But the most favorite place of the Cyprus Lochness is Cape Greco, the easternmost point of the island, located a few minutes drive from the city of Ayia Napa and is a habitat for rare plants.

The creature does not cause much harm (sometimes tears fishing nets).

Some believe that the Ayia Napa monster and Scylla (Skill) are the same thing.
