AZTEC MYTHOLOGY

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

OPOCHTLI

Aztec Hunting God

God of all the Tools for Bird Snaring, Hunting and Fishing

He was also left-handed, the only instance of a left-handed God we know of. So if you didn’t catch anything, you could always fall back on the excuse of being forced to use a left-handed fish hook.
