Ahuiztol or Ahuizotl, and Does it Matter?

When thinking of the next water monster to talk about, some part of my mind dredged up a freaky Mayan creature I had once read about. All I could remember was that it had a hand on its tail and vaguely what it looked like, and I was pretty sure that the book I’d read the information in didn’t mention its name. So, I turned to my friend, Taryn, who’s working on a book that involves a culture that she styled
