Geb
Geb was the Egyptian god of the Earth and a member of the Egyptian Nine Ennead of Heliopolis. It was believed in ancient Egypt that Geb’s laughter was earthquakes and that he allowed crops to grow.

Geb was frequently described mythologically as the father of snakes could also be depicted as a ram, a bull or a crocodile. Geb is the husband of Nut, the sky or visible daytime and nightly firmament, the son of the earlier primordial elements Tefnut (moisture) and Shu ('emptiness'), and the father to the four lesser gods of the system – Osiris, Set, Isis and Nephthys.
