I couldn't tell you what this strange creature is other than some kind of imaginative or fantasy or mythological serpent. Note the teeth in the back of its neck. We saw this in the market square in Manaus, where I wanted to take home almost everything I saw, and fortunately (?) couldn't afford to and didn't have a big enough suitcase. Of course, it reminds me of the monster in Alien. Who knows? I don't even know what it's made of, other than it looks like modeling clay.
