Themilom, this hodag and certainly the cave hodag seems to be the only creature that might, possibly, exist, or something anyway with light-giving eyes. Are you sure no one ever really saw one ?
In deep seas there are animals that give light. Would it not be probably so there are similar ' life forms 'in caves as well?

Code:
"In deep seas there are animals that give light.

forms 'in caves as well?"

Well that depends, BranShea. How flexible are your
 semantic parameters for a Hodag? 

 Thirty years ago I was wading through Gross-Skeleton Cave
 when my carbide light suddenly  went out.
But before I could curse my fate I said "Wow!". 
All around me were hundreds of tiny lights,
 blinking on and off. I was  King Kong standing 
tall but bewildered in a well-lit big city.
 I tried to get a  close look at one of these
 little lights, but as I approached, each 
 would blink off.

  What I saw was, of course, an example 
of bioluminescence; hundreds of little gnat
 sized creatures washed in from the forest outside,
 each blinking  his own light. 
                    
And such a pretty blue-green light.
    
            Back with more in a minute.

Hmm, King Kong. My semantic parameters are in no state at all. Certainly not for a hodag on a dinsdag (morning).

Your report is nice and understandable enough. Pretty blue-green light. I can imagine the scene.

And thanks for making me practise that code stuff again.
