One of the most intriguing urban legends of the Northeast of Brazil is with no doubt the Hairy Leg. A supernatural entity that would have haunted the streets of Recife during the 1970s.

Appearing where least expected (and by the way, where one would expect it to appear?), this creature was the opposite-symmetrical of Saci PererĂª. In other words, it was a leg-without-person, rather than a person-without-leg that appeared jumping and attacked passers-by, kicking around everybody and then fled jumping.
