Taputji - Little Uluru
Kandju, a little lizard man who lived alone, moved near the camp of the Mala women and here the Yangkuntjatjara named him Linga. He lived mainly on honey ants, but he was chased by worker ants and bitten each time he stole honey. He became very hungry and almost starved. Then one day he saw a young carpet snake girl asleep in front of her shelter and killed her for food. The body of the Kuniya girl changed into a boulder, the wound on her neck into a rock fissure. Having eaten the girl Linga left the area and travelled away.
