Amarok (or Amaroq) is the name of a gigantic grey wolf in Inuit mythology.

It is said to hunt down and devour anyone foolish enough to hunt alone at night. Unlike real wolves who hunt in packs, Amarok hunts alone. It is sometimes considered equivalent to the Waheela of cryptozoology.

Popular culture[]
