The Alicanto is a bird of  Chilean Mythology, and is believed to feed on gold and other precious metals such as silver. Depending on which metal they are consuming they can take on the material properties of it. Their metallic feathers emit light that is golden if they are eating gold, or silver if consuming silver.Since an alicanto indicates the presence of precious metal , it is often sought out by those hoping to find those treasures or veins in the Earth to mine. Should the bird suspect it’s being followed, it could decide to lead the treasure-hunter to their doom instead”
