    Re: The Gwiber of Penmachno
     A Gwiber (in Welsh folklore a dragon or winged serepent), is said to be created when a snake drinks human breast milk. Of course this is a rare occurance, and would only have a chance of happening naturally if and when a lactating mother expressed milk on to the ground whilst out walking. 
    Another version of the story states that the unfortunate hero of this tale was an outlaw named Hiraethog, who sought the advise of a wizard.
