In the world of nature, there are two kinds of creatures - predators and prey. Most of the animals out there are prey for something. No matter how big they are, there's something else willing to give it a try with tooth and claw to see what it tastes like. Even the largest whale may fall prey to sharks, or an elephant can be set upon by lions if the circumstances are right. The only thing that keeps you free from predators is being the apex predator where you live. The top of the heap. The most dangerous creature around. And even then, maybe one of your own kind will get you if you fall ill. It's a brutal world sometimes, but that's the law of the jungle.
Most humans tend to take things a little easier. Our species are formidable predators, of course, but we usually use our wits and skill to assist with that. On our own, with our bare hands, we're not usually a match for those predators in the wild. So maybe sometimes we need to take on aspects of those creatures. Maybe under the light of the full moon, when things get a little mysterious, you're less yourself and more predator than normal. The question is, which predator? It's time to find out!
