STORY TIME:
In South America and Ancient Cultures people worship natural deities. The sun, moon and stars are often the center of worship. Often animals may be idolized; anacondas and jaguars. The South American myth I am retelling for you is about a Jaguar. The Jaguar is the "master of fire". His meals consist of cooked meat. One day a hungary man came across the Jaguar. The Jaguar fed him cooked meat and gave the man a generous amount of weapons. The man had never eaten cooked meat and enjoyed what the Jaguar fed him. In order to repay the Jaguar, the man killed his wife and stole his fire. Since that day, the Jaguar lives alone in the forest with much hate towards civilization. BE CAREFUL.......HE WAITS FOR REVENGE!
