From Dusk Till Dawn Wiki

The Cipactli was a character who appeared in the fifth episode of the third season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. It was an ancient sea monster type Xibalban.


It would put itself in a river next to a village and would release myots that would eat the vegetation, and then contaminate the water supply until all the villagers became cannibalistic.
