Legend says that the alicanto's wings shine at night with beautiful, metallic colors, and their eyes emit strange lights.
If the lucky miner follows an alicanto without being caught, they can find silver or gold. But, if the alicanto discovers them, the bird will guide the greedy miner off a cliff and cause them to fall to their death.
Alicanto should not be confused with the Alicante, a fictional Mexican snake that drinks mother's milk, impregnates women, and lives in human stomachs.
