Aido Wedo - Rainbow Serpent of Dahomey Mythology

Aido Wedo - Rainbow Serpent of Dahomey Mythology-
Aido Wedo - Rainbow Serpent
Well In my quest of my love for the Dragon! I have 
found an African Dragon. African Dragons are more like Serpents or Giant snakes, but
they permeate the myths of the African tribes and even appear in the Egyptian pantheon as 
Apep [Apophis]. The most accessible of the African Dragons is the Aido - Hwedo (Wedo) of
Dahomey in West Africa. These African Dragons are a rainbow - coloured and that is true for
both the male and female dragons. It was said that they were brought into the world by the 
God Nana-Buluku to serve as his companion and instrument tin his Creation of the World & to hold up the World or Earth. 
There's more to the tale so I hope I haven't lost you, the Rainbow African Dragon was the only
being capable of travelling  between Heaven and Earth. And the Dragon was able to Carry the 
Creator God in its mouth as it passed between the two realms. 
The two realms that the African Rainbow Dragon passing through represent the 
links between the Sacred and the Secular. So while in the Heaven the Dragon is bent 
across the sky as a rainbow arch and its dropping became mountains and fertile soil, plus its 
Aido Wedo Rainbow Serpent
living in the oceans with his troop of
Red Monkeys
writhing passage formed the rivers and valleys. It seems that this African Rainbow dragon 
was so enormous that it could hold up the entire world, but once the multitude of creation was
done Nana-Buluku asked Aido Wedo to coil up beneath the land to cushion it.
Of course Aido Wedo did as he was told, because he was a godly Dragon, but only after a while 
the enormous Dragon couldn't handle the extreme heat that was under the world, so the 
Creator Nana-Buluku made the oceans for his Dragon to live in. Note: Like the Midgard Serpent in
the Teutonic Legend. So the Aido Wedo Rainbow Serpent Dragon lived underseas all over the 
oceans with a troop of Red Monkeys who forge the Iron Bars that are Aido Wedo food. Now
When the iron run out and Aido Wedo grows hungry he will start to chew on its own tail. This will cause
the earth above to become unbalance, also to be struck by repeated Earthquakes and if not feed, 
the eventually slide off the Dragons bake into the sea. Note; the Aido Wedo African Rainbow dragon
name is by many Aido Wedo - Aido Hawedo - Danbala Wedo
 - Oshunmare Yoruban and Aido Hwedo.
I also found that this tale of the Rainbow Serpent can be found not only
in Africa, but in Australian and in Central and Southern America too. There 
are even some version of the Rainbow Serpent where he's not in the heavens 
holding up the world , rather he flies from a waterhole to waterhole bringing 
rain to those regions that require it. There is also the proble of the name variations
too. It seems there is a question on the God/demigod .. It really all comes down
to what you the reader think might be true or not. My thoughts are it seems 
that the most info was on the African Aido Wedo Rainbow dragon and I loved the legend too.
 Well I hope that you all Enjoyed my newest post on my summer quest on 
finding as many Dragons legends as I can for my loveof the DRAGON!
