That must be Appuhamige kabaragoya!! Those who remember the old Royal thomian ditty will know !!
Twenty years ago a real giant Kabaragoya quietly went by my house in Polhengoda, and a baby Thalagoya was under the coverlets of my bed and my wife got the shock of her life, so I caught it and threw it out, my wife was pregnant at the time. Nature is real and should be enjoyed.
