The Jasy Jatere is also playful amongst human children. When a Jasy Jatere wants to play, they 'kidnap' a child who isn't going through a period of sleep known as the siesta (which is a short nap; 'cat-napping') from a nearby village. Then, it will take the child deep into the jungle to have mischievous fun. Afterwards, before anyone wakes up from their naps at the village, the Jasy Jatere just has to give the child a kiss which will teleport him/or her back to their home. Jasy Jatere kisses are quite valuable is one wants to get home the quickest way and can be harbored by their saliva. The only side effect though is that once kiss, you'll lose your memory for the the past twenty-four hours.
The Jasy Jatere (featured in photograph) are known to be both friendly and vicious. Like humans, elves, dwarfs, and gnomes; they can choose the path of good or evil. Evil Jasy Jatere are known to kidnap and kill children while the good ones kidnap children to play. A very powerful and deadly creature that the Guaraní people much watch out for, both good or bad.
