ARE WEREWOLVES REAL?
In the episode, we’re taking a look at something a lot of you guys are curious about: WEREWOLVES. Are they just fiction? Or are there real Werewolves in this world.
We’re also taking a loot at two other #realorfake this week. One is a picture sent in by Noah Lee who wants to know if there is a real “Clown Motel” out there, and another picture sent in by siggybiggy of a little creature. It looks like an Aye Aye, but is it real?
I addition to all that, I have some new #fanart and my Favorite Fake Of the Week!

MORE ABOUT WEREWOLVES
In folklore, a werewolf or occasionally lycanthrope is a human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf (or, especially in modern film, a therianthropic hybrid wolflike creature), either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction (often a bite or scratch from another werewolf) and especially on the night of a full moon. Early sources for belief in this ability or affliction, called lycanthropy /laɪˈkænθrəpi/, are Petronius (27–66) and Gervase of Tilbury (1150–1228).
The werewolf is a widespread concept in European folklore, existing in many variants, which are related by a common development of a Christian interpretation of underlying European folklore developed during the medieval period. From the early modern period, werewolf beliefs also spread to the New World with colonialism. Belief in werewolves developed in parallel to the belief in witches, in the course of the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Like the witchcraft trials as a whole, the trial of supposed werewolves emerged in what is now Switzerland (especially the Valais and Vaud) in the early 15th century and spread throughout Europe in the 16th, peaking in the 17th and subsiding by the 18th century.
