(Hindu Demon)AGHASURA

The Gi-Mungus Serpent General of King Kamsa. This wasn't his full time form but it seemed like the best way to lure Krishna to his doom.

Aghasura was still smarting after Vishu's fifth Avatar had killed his brothers - Putana and Bakasura - so when he spotted Krishna's poofty buddies frollicking in the forest he thought it was his lucky day.

Being so vast Aghasura lay between two mountains and the naive cowherd boys mistook his mouth for a giant cavern and wandered inside. But he didn't swallow them, they boys were merely an unsuspecting lure as the demon lay motionless waiting for Krishna to join the party.

The problem with swallowing a super-god is you can never be quite sure what is going to happen and in this case Krishna grew to such epic proportions that Aghasura couldn't breath in or out. In the throes of struggle Aghasura's eyes popped right out and the hot air that everyone always suspected he was full of escaped through the sockets along with his life force.
