      What a striking albino form I have never seen in my travels! Lots more Dragons mouth can be seen between Minnesota and Michigan and in NE as well–have you been out that way?

      It is a word from mythology (from wikipedia):

      “n Greek mythology, Arethusa (/ˌærɪˈθjuːzə/; Greek: Ἀρέθουσα) was a nymph and daughter of Nereus (making her a Nereid),[1] who fled from her home in Arcadia beneath the sea and came up as a fresh water fountain on the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, Sicily.”
