In Teen Wolf, The Bestiary is a encyclopedia of supernatural creatures, it was first introduced in Season 2. It was said to look like an old leather-bond book but in Gerard's case, it was on a USB flash drive and some time later, a hard copy was created. Hunters have used it to document all the monsters they've encountered over the years. The Bestiary is mainly written in Archaic Latin and is said to have over one thousand pages.

Bestiary Entries[edit | edit source]
These vicious supernatural creatures were an unwelcome discovery among the native people of the new world. They are known to have an uncontrollable appetite for human flesh which leads them to kill despite any better judgment they might processes.
Sneaky creatures, Wendigos can maintain a human appearance while hiding multiple fanged teeth (similar to Kanimas) behind their lips. However, when in their true form, Wendigos' eyes shimmer with a white glow.
While there may be a tactical strike known to kill these supernatural cannibals, among the tribes who have been most affected by Wendigos, it is yet unknown to us.
A Wendigo is strong enough to not only fight an Alpha Werewolf but to possibly win such a fight.
Like the wolf, its power is greatest at the moon's peak.
Like the wolf, the Kanima is a social creature but where the wolf seeks a pack the Kanima seeks a master.
The Kanima, a weapon of vengeance, is used to carry out the bidding of its master. The Kanima was once used by a South American priest who took it upon himself to rid his village of all murderers. The bond between master and servant grew stronger until the will of the master became that of the Kanima's and whomever the priest deemed unworthy, the Kanima served his vengeance.
The Kanima is a mutation of the werewolf gene that cannot fully transform until it resolves that in its past which manifest it.
