I've spent some time on the Sucuriju (it has a C, not a K). I've read a small childrens book about cryptids, and it spoke of the sucuriju, saying
that besided Fawcett, natives have killed them as well. It also said that a small tributary of the Amazon has been marked with a cross from the death
of natives and explorers who have disapeared there. It's interesting to note that the area also has long, large trails coming in and out of the water
that resemble that of a snake about ten feet wide.
There was a b&w photo taken in the congo from a helicopter of a supposed giant snake. Do a google for sucuriju, then images. You should find it
The sucuriju was supposedly also sighted coming inside a village/town, where it attacked a few people, then left having been chased off by angry
villlagers and people.
That's what I know of it.
Oh, and the tribes and villagers belive it is cursed to let a sucuriju's body lay on the ground, it must be placed into the water, where they are
mainly sighted, specificaly the amazon, which is why so many people never get a photo.
And I believe it was Cryptozoology.com, they had a sighting of the sucuriju, or skin or something like that.
