Item description

Werewolves are large and fearsome creatures said to have originated in Northern and Western Europe hundreds of years ago and to still prowl the world today under the full moon. They have appeared alongside vampires and other horrible creatures in plays and Hollywood films for many years as well as being found in historical texts from around the world.
