Anubis and Xolotl

Anubis and Xolotl.
Egypt, Mexico and…Wisconsin…?

How vastly confusing! Where do we begin?
Let’s go with Wisconsin, shall we?

Aztalan State Park is roughly 50 miles due west of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
It’s Wisconsin’s premier archaeological site and no one knows for sure what befell the culture that once thrived here.

“The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Decades of archaeological research, including carbon dating and tooth samples found at the site that were traced back to Cahokia, have provided some clues to the culture that created these mounds.

He can get by on fish, and he has, for weeks, but a deer would really be nice right about now.
As he stealthily begins to move through the forest he catches sight of the rising moon. Not quite full, but he is no fairy-tale creature. He raises his long muzzle and howls…

Meet the Werewolf. The Wolfen. The Wulver, if you will.
In my lengthy discussions about my favorite cryptid with a Facebook friend I have come to call the werewolf Clive, since werewolf takes forever to type, and I’m all about efficiency.
Also, Clive seems to de-mystify them a bit. Because whatever they are, I definitely don’t believe they are shapeshifters.
But I definitely do believe they exist.
