A Cyclops.

Cyclops (SYE-klops). One-eyed giant of the race that built Olympus for the gods; plural: Cyclopes. The Cyclops who almost devoured Odysseus and all his shipmates on their return from the Trojan War was named Polyphemus. This gigantic goatherd dined on Greeks for nights on end before the hero thought to poke out his eye.
