Glyph of the word 'molo'o'.


  • (n.) komodo dragon (or some like monitor lizard)

A huita molo’o i hoku ti toko.
“The komodo dragon is stronger than an elephant.”

Notes: The molo’o is a revered animal for the Kamakawi. Indeed: It is one of the three sacred animals of the Kamakawi. He’s kind of like a lion on the islands: the most feared and fearsome predator. I imagine them to be a bit larger than komodo dragons, and able to lift their heads a bit higher. Nevertheless, a komodo dragon is pretty close.
