Therianthropy is the mythological ability or affliction of individuals to metamorphose into animals or hybrids by means of shapeshifting. It is possible that cave drawings found at Les Trois Frères, in France, depict ancient beliefs in the concept.[citation needed]

The best-known form of therianthropy, called lycanthropy, is found in stories of werewolves.
