In studying legends and folklore from around the world, one also learns about existing cultural traditions and taboos. As an example, in parts of Asia there is a custom called ohagura involving dyeing one's teeth black. This practice was mainly performed by women indicating their martial status, wealthy, and sexual maturity. The custom has existed in Japan for hundreds of years that may have given birth to the legend of Ohaguro-Bettari.

In the past, I have read my fair share of legends and myths from around the world.

Much of earth's past remains unknown and recent discoveries of other hominids has reshaped the human family tree. What other humanoid races existed on the past? Could they still be alive today? These questions and others were racing in my mind after watching this YouTube video.
