Did you actually mean bulla or boll?


  1. Bolla

    The bolla is a demonic serpent in Albanian mythology and folklore. The bolla's eyes remain shut for the whole year except on Saint George's Day, when it gazes the world and will devour any human on sight. The female dragon kucedra is the form the bolla will eventually attain should it live many years without being seen by a human. The bullar and ershaj are considered intermediate forms of this serpent as it goes through a series of metamorphoses according to northern local traditions. These terms also signify serpents; the term bullar merely being a synonym for bolla in Southern Albania. Kulshedra can also appear in the guise of a female human, or other female herps.


  1. Bolla

    Bolla, is a type of serpentic dragon with a long, coiled, serpentine body, four legs and small wings in ancient Albanian folklore. This dragon sleeps throughout the whole year, only to wake on Saint George's Day, where its faceted silver eyes peer into the world. The Bolla does this until it sees a human. It devours the person, then closes its eyes and sleeps again. In its twelfth year, the bolla evolves by growing nine tongues, horns, spines and larger wings. At this time it will learn how to use its formerly hidden fire-breathing abilities, and is now called a Kuçedra. The Kuçedra causes droughts and lives off human sacrifices. The Kuçedra is sometimes also represented as an enormous woman with a hairy body and hanging breasts. In other mythologies it corresponds to the Lernaean Hydra of the Greek Mythology. The monster can cause a shortage of water and it requires human sacrifices to propitiate it. The creature is also known as Bullar in southern Albania.
