I don't think that's quite on the nose. Thanks, though. Most promising lead so far.

I typed in "Mythical beast that swallows itself" and Ouroboros wikipedia is at the top. 1dunno1

Wow, the whole first page has links to Ouroboros stuff.

I only googled it for the spelling. chuckle I missed the U.

There are quite a few myths out there. As the asker of the question, I think I'll know when I hear the correct answer. Assuming there's only one. But thanks!

Yes, duly noted. Will keep it in mind as other potential candidates are submitted.

True, so I kept looking.
Ok I found something else-

"Erysichthon, Who Got So Hungry He Ate Himself"
"Erysichthon is a unique sort of cannibal, famous for devouring the most shocking of victims - himself. In Greek mythology, Erysichthon, also sometimes called Aethon, cut down a huge oak in Demeter’s forest and killed a nymph, who cursed him as she died. To add to his woes, Demeter placed the spirit of insatiable hunger, Limos, in his stomach, which meant that the more he hate, the hungrier he got. Eventually, driven mad by his hunger, he ate himself - a prospect that is definitely a new level of terrifying. "

When I get home, you're gonna get it.
