In Belarusian mythology, a swamp spirit inhabiting a bagna (peat bog or bagna). Belief in him is especially widespread in the Vitebsk province. It betrays its presence by bubbles on the surface of swamp slime, unusual sounds and small lights flying over it.

He is described as fat, eyeless, blind, very dirty.

At the habitat of the Bagnik, you can see a black dirty puddle that does not freeze even in severe frost, which is not covered with vegetation, but seems to breathe.

The only thing that scares Bagnik is drought and drainage of swamps. The favorite herb of this unclean is bagun, which is able to stupefy the head.
