text: In the Tanhai language morung is "heang". The Punkhung Ang comes from Tanhai. The Punkhung men once killed their own Ang and asked for an Ang from Tanhai. When his family died out they again got an Ang from Tanhai. The Long-dza morung consists mainly of Tanhai people. (78) Shopong says that a tiger, not a frog, devours the sun and the moon.
