From Vishnu Puraan, 5/5
Keshee was a Daitya and was killed by Krishn in Dwaapar Yug. After many efforts to kill Krishn, Kans sent Keshee Daitya with the desire to kill Krishn, so he came in Vrindaa Van in the form of a horse. He dug the earth's surface with his feet, scattered clouds by his neck's hair and ran towards Gop. Gop got frightened and rushed to Krishn for help. Krishn said - "Don't be afraid of this Keshee horse. You are Gop, then why are you afraid of this horse. He cannot harm you at all." Then He said to Keshee - "Come here to me. As Shiv extracted teeth of Pooshaa, I will also extract your teeth." and saying thus He came in front of the horse. Keshee also ran towards Him with open mouth. Krishn put His arm in his mouth and his all teeth fell on the ground. Now Krishn's arm started growing in his mouth, and it grew so much that his mouth burst out, eyes came out of his eye sockets and he died.
