A source of weird creature lore often overlooked in the world is that which comes from Native American myths. This particular monster from the Inuit culture is the Amarok, which is a giant wolf creature perhaps, like many myths, based on actual animals that roamed ancient North America. It could be based on the dire wolves that once lived in the forests of Canada, or possibly the short-faced bear (talk about a monster). The creature often hunted humans, in particular those who wonder the wilderness alone.
