A creature from English folklore. Jenny can kidnap children if they are playing near the water, and drag them to the very bottom. The approach of this creature is usually indicated by a greenish foam that suddenly appeared on the calm surface of a pond or other body of water.

Often they scratch their legs with sharp claws until they bleed, or simply frighten with their terrible appearance: long wet hair loose over their shoulders, large green fangs sticking out of their mouths, and very sharp shiny claws.

Green-toothed Jenny (also Evil Jenny, Green-Toothed Ginny; English Jenny Greenteeth, Jinny Greenteeth, Wicked Jenny, Ginny Greenteeth, Jeannie Greenteeth; from the ancient English language "Jenny" — "fair") — a river or swamp witch in English folklore, which probably explained the cruel death of people in reservoirs. It is known in the counties of Lancashire, Cheshire, Shropshire, Yorkshire.
