I had a weird dream a few months back, about a creature that could shift form between that of a human and that of an alligator. Being analogous to a werewolf, I accordingly christened it a ‘weregator’.

I was curious to see if anyone else had thought of it – I figured I couldn’t be the first – and I was right, other people definitely also have done so (Googling ‘werealligator‘ and ‘weregator‘, one can see that.)

However, all of those I saw seem to have been products of the imagination of modern times; none seem to be age-old myths from, say, Seminole Indians. Too bad; older myths are more interesting.
