The Deargadaol is a little creeping insect like a worm with a red stripe on it's back.
If a person walked on it while creeping along they could never kill it.
But they say that if a person stood on it seven times, it would cock up it's tail and die.
It is also said that it brings bad luck to that person.
That is the story that I heard about the Deargadaol.
