A ramidreju is a creature from Spanish mythology, from Cantabria, that resembles a weasel. They are born every 100 years from a weasel or a marten. This animal has a very long body, like a snake, and their fur is slightly green-colored. Its eyes are yellow and its nose is like that of a hog, which it uses to dig very profound holes. Ramidrejus are a very wanted animal in Spanish folklore because its fur heals every sickness and the animal has a big desire for gold.
