Cipactli Cipactli () 'Crocodile' or 'Caiman', was the first day of the Aztec divinatory count of 13 X 20 days (the "tonalpohualli"), and "Cipactonal" 'Sign of Cipactli' was considered to have been the first diviner. In Aztec cosmology, the crocodile symbolized the earth floating in the primeval waters. According to one Aztec tradition, "Teocipactli" 'Divine Crocodile' was the name of a survivor of the flood who rescued himself in a canoe and again peopled the earth. In the Mixtec Vienna Codex (Codex Vindobonensis Mexicanus I), Crocodile is a day associated with dynastic beginnings.
Cipactli In Aztec mythology, Cipactli was a primeval sea monster, part crocodilian, part fish and part toad or frog, with indefinite gender.

He and Quetzalcoatl created the earth from its body.

Tezcatlipoca In one of the Aztec accounts of creation, Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca joined forces to create the world. Before their act there was only the sea and the crocodilian earthmonster called Cipactli. To attract her, Tezcatlipoca used his foot as bait, and Cipactli ate it. The two gods then captured her, and distorted her to make the land from her body. After that, they created the people, and people had to offer sacrifices to comfort Cipactli for her sufferings. Because of this, Tezcatlipoca is depicted with a missing foot.
Senior societies at University of Pennsylvania The members of Cipactli are chosen anytime between their Sophomore Spring semester and Senior Fall semester, and go through a rigorous application process. They are chosen for their outstanding work both in and outside the academic sphere, as well as their deep commitment to helping their communities develop in a sustainable and meaningful way. Cipactli's philosophy is known as "The three pillars of Cipactli" which are Leadership, Academic Achievement, and Community Service.
Luis de Santa María Nanacacipactzin His Nahuatl name, "Nanacacipactli" (or "Nanacacipactzin" in the honorific form), literally means "mushroom alligator". It appears his birth name was simply "Cipactli" "alligator", and the "mushroom" element was added as a nickname.
Five Suns Other variations of this myth claim that only Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca were born to Ometeotl, who was replaced by Coatlicue in this myth probably because it had absolutely no worshipers or temples by the time the Spanish arrived. It is sometimes said that the male characteristic of Ometeotl is named Ometecutli and that the female characteristic is named Omecihualt. Further variations on this myth state that it was only Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca who pulled apart Cipactli, also known as Tlaltecuhtli, and that Xipe Totec and Huitzilopochtli then constructed the world from her body. Some versions claim that Tezcatlipoca actually used his leg as bait for Cipactli, before dismembering her.
