The three horned garranoo is an exotic beast, said to have originated from Ecuador.
Bullmack sighters have reported it as looking like a cross between a giraffe and a unicorn.
Earliest sightings were from natives of a rural village, Icuada, whose village people saw “strange glowing monsters” at night. Legends say that the garranoo is tame and friendly while there’s sunlight, but once the sun goes down, it turns into a ferocious monster.
As time went on, people found that there was nothing to fear as the beast posed no threat.
At the University of Ecuador, many students have observed the beast and its behavior. The garranoos are sensitive to sunlight and prefer night time. They are vegetarian and generally ignore people.They are known for nightly appearances because of its strange coating. Garranoos are mostly normal except during October through November, their mating season. Only the males have the glow and it’s because they secrete a substance called nierrodium. When it mixes with the garranoo’s pheromones, it creates an eerie halo like appearance. For these animals, it is a unique mating mechanism. When a male has more nierrodium, he has more glow, which enables the females to find him easier in the dark. Since the females are partly blind, the garranoos use their three horns to attack other competitors.
Once a female has chosen her mate, they are bonded forever through a mating ritual. The male licks the female’s face and rubs his nierrodium on her. Thus, the female will know her mate’s scent and will always find her way to him.
