This was a Centaur-like creature that had the upper-half of a human and the lower-half of a black horse. It terrorized the people of Central America in Yacutan. The Spanish writer Bernal Diaz del Castillo 1492 1581, in ‘Historia de la Conquista de la Nueva Espana’ explained that the people of Yacutan mistook the Spanish riders as one animal. The legend lived on as a dark cannibal stallion.
