(Aztec Creature) CIPACTLI

Also known as COXCOXTLI, HUEHUETONACACIPACTLI

The crocodile-like earth monster. He was singled out as the ideal source for raw materials by Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca in DIY mode, but there was one small problem... they had to catch him first.

Tezcatlipoca drew the short straw and used his right foot as bait which didn't quite go to plan as Cipactli bit it right off! Still, it was a small price to pay for the enormous big mound of croc' they got to build the first world with.

Cipactli is also known as Huehuetonacacipactli, the old old fish God of our flesh, which doesn't make him sound any more approachable.
