In the Aztec mythology of Central America, this great horned owl is an omen of the very greatest evil. He dwells within the temple of Itzlacolohqui, the god of the obsidian knife, who represents the iciness of death and great obstinacy.

John and Caitlin Matthews, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, 2013, Tlasolotl, p 468
