Ahuizotl Picture

From Aztec mythology, this nasty little thing was supposes to look like a cross between a monkey and a dog with a hand on its tail. It lives in water where' on the approach of prey' it would squeal and sound like a distressed baby or child, and it would splash about as if there were someone drowning. If it worked it would drown its victim then let the corpse "ripen" in the water for few days. After that it ate the eyes, nails, and teeth.
