The cuegle is a black skinned monster in Cantabrian folklore (northern Spain).
Walking on two legs and roughly humanoid in shape, the cuegle has black skin, three arms without hands or fingers, five rows of teeth, a single stubby horn and three eyes in its head: one green, one red, and one blue.
Despite its small size, the cuegle has great strength. It may be protected against by placing oak or holly leaves, which it finds repulsive, in the cradle.
The cuegle attacks people and livestock, and is reputed to steal babies from the cradle.
