  • A demonic mythical creature in Serbian mythology; belief about it existed in Srem. Sometimes imagined as a six-legged monster with gnarled horns. He lives in lakes and big pools, coming out of the water during the night making big noise (hence the name: Serbian buka - noise), jumping onto people and animals and strangling them.
