Episode 5

In Azteck mythology, the Centzon Totochtin, meaning “four-hundred rabbits,” are a group of deities who meet for frequent parties. They are divine rabbits, and the gods of drunkenness.

The importance of the four-hundred rabbits is reflected in the fact that the Aztecs dedicated a temple in the sacred precinct of their capital, Tenochtitlan, to them.
