Tu Lou/土螻

Tu Lou/土螻, shaped like a sheep with four horns, eat humans, Haunted in KunLun hill.

Four hundred li to the southwest, there lies the Kunlun Hills. This is indeed the lower capital of the Emperor, governed by the divine Lu Wu. The god has the body of a tiger and nine tails, a human face but tiger claws. This god presides over the nine divisions of heaven and the Emperor’s hunting times. There is a beast there, shaped like a sheep with four horns, named Tu Lou. It eats humans.

《山海經·西山經》

西南四百裏,曰昆侖之丘,是實惟帝之下都,神陸吾司之。其神狀虎身而九尾,人面而虎爪;是神也,司天之九部及帝之囿時。有獸焉,其狀如羊而四角,名曰土螻,是食人。
