[[Image:Cadejo.jpg‎|thumb|250px|Black and White Cadejos]]
The '''cadejo''' ({{IPA-es|kaˈðexo}}) is a character from [[El Salvador|Salvadoran]], [[Belize]]an, [[Nicaraguan]], [[Costa Rica]]n, [[Honduras|Honduran]], [[Guatemala]]n and [[Mexico|southern Mexican]] [[folklore]]. There is a [[Good and evil|good]], white cadejo and an [[evil]], black cadejo. Both are [[spirit]]s that appear at night to travelers: the white to protect them from harm during their journey, the black (sometimes an incarnation of the [[devil]]), to kill them. The colors of the Cadejo are sometimes exchanged according to local tradition. In some places the black cadejo is seen as the good one and the white cadejo the evil one. They usually appear in the form of a large (up to the size of a cow), shaggy dog with burning red eyes and a [[goat]]'s [[hooves]], although in some areas they have more [[bull]]-like characteristics. According to the stories, many have tried to kill the black cadejo but have failed and perished. Also it is said that if a cadejo is killed, it will smell terrible for several days, and then its body will disappear. Some Guatemalan folklore also tells of a cadejo that guards [[drunk]]s against anyone who tries to rob or hurt them. When the cadejo is near, it is said to bring about a strong goat-like smell. Most people say never to turn your back to the creature because otherwise you will go [[Insanity|crazy]].

In popular [[etymology]], the name cadejo is thought to have derived from the [[Spanish language|Spanish]] word "cadena", meaning "[[Link chain|chain]]"; the cadejo is at times represented as dragging a chain behind him. There is a fairly large member of the [[weasel]] family, the [[tayra]], which in common speech is called a cadejo and is cited as a possible source of the [[legend]].
