Xan

Central American - An animal, in the lore of the Maya. It is said that this animal, of unspecified species, was sent ahead of Hanapu and Ixbalanque when they went to Xibabla, to find out the names of the rulers. He did this by pricking each one, causing them to shout out, so that the others would call to ask what the fuss was about. Also commonly referred to as Xan, Xam, Xam or Xan.
