The Huay Chivo is a humanoid creature, usually depicted as a half-man/half-goat. The legend is heard in the Yucatec-Maya region and truly feared. In Yucatan, it is common to hear: “Beware of walking after midnight in the places where the Huay Chivo goes, because this being of darkness can put all kinds of wickedness on you".

We share the origins of the legend, sightings and other similar legends.

CW- content warning, animal rituals & deaths are discussed in this episode.
