HONOYETA

In Papua New Guinean mythology, Honoyeta was the demon who brought mortality to human beings. he had two wives, who mated with him as an enormous snake. But when they went to work each morning, he shed his snakeskin, became a handsome human and enjoyed sex with every pretty girl he found. One day the wives found out and burned his snakeskin. Honoyeta, condemned to human form for the rest of eternity, retaliated by introducing death to mankind.
