In the Mayan traditions Yac the forest cat was one of the four animals who helped to bring maize to the gods so that the god could form mankind. The other creatures who helped in the creation were Hoh the crow, Quel the parrot and Utiu the coyote.

John and Caitlin Matthews, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, 2013, Yac,    p 529
