Just how does one become a werewolf? This also has changed throughout history. In 20th century modern fiction, it is commonly believed that you must be bitten by a werewolf actually to become one. But that was not always the case. In stories from earlier times, all one had to do was wear a belt made of wolf skin. Another legend claimed that just drinking rainwater from a wolf paw print was enough for the transformation. In Italy, it was believed that if someone slept outside on a Wednesday or a Friday, and the moon was full, that person would become a werewolf. This belief led to the notion that a full moon caused a werewolf to transform.

Rye and mistletoe were commonly used to repel werewolves. Reeds of rye were hung on doorways to keep werewolves from entering. A plant called wolfsbane was thought to be a cure from becoming a werewolf. In middle eastern cultures, it was thought that one could kill a werewolf if you struck it on the head with a knife. In Germany, they believed that by calling the werewolf by his human name would return him to his proper state. It wasn’t until 1935 that the idea of shooting a werewolf with a Silver bullet was introduced. It was first mentioned in a book, but over the years, it has become ingrained in peoples minds that it is the only way to kill a werewolf.

The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman - these are the names of the elusive beasts that have caught the eye and captured the imaginations of people around the world for centuries. Recently, tales of these "monsters" have been corroborated by an increase in sightings, and out of these legends a new science has been born: cryptozoology.
