Mayan Bat God

Also known as CAMAZOTZ, SOTZ, ZOTZ

God of Bats

Not as in bat-and-ball, which wouldn’t be surprising given the Mayan’s love for sport, but flappy wings and pointy teeth.

Naturalists and Godologists believe him to be a leaf-nosed vampire bat. He has his own House of Bats in the Underworld, and caused no end of trouble for the HERO-TWINS.
