can eat a lot of meat, and if it kills more than it can eat, it will carry
away and store excess in a hiding spot for later.
The Gulon is considered to be a symbol of gluttony.
Magnus- "He is as great as a great dog, and his ears and face are
like a cat's: his feet and nails are very sharp; his body is hairy, with
long brown hair, his tail is somewhat shorter, but his hair is thicker,
and of this they make brave winter caps. Wherefore this creature is
the most voracious; for, when he finds a carcasse, he devours so much,
that his body, by over-much meat, is stretched like a drum, and finding a
streit passage between trees, he presseth between them, that he may
discharge his body by violence; and this being emptied, he returns to the
carcasse and fills himself top full."
Topsell- "This beast was not known by
the ancients, but hath bin since discovered in the Northern parts of the
world. (Germany and the Netherlands)...When it hath found a dead carcass
he eateth thereof so violently that his belly standeth out like a bell;
then he seeketh for some narrow passage betwixt two trees, and there
draweth through his body, by pressing whereof he driveth out the meat
which he had eaten; and being so emptied returneth and devoureth as much
as he did before."
