The Cloud Diver,” is classified in the same family as the legendary Chinese Qilin. This mystical amphibious creature is commonly found in the fresh water streams of East Asia, and surprisingly, is also capable of flight. At night, when out of its natural element--water--it floats over the land delivering pollen from plant to plant, and spreading seeds in areas where bees and butterflies have diminished in population. They are only visible when struck by moonlight, and the sight of one is a good omen, thought to presage prosperity and serenity.
