Your Field Guide to Spotting Cyclopes

You really should think hard before you go looking for a Cyclops. Those guys are known for having really nasty tempers... like really nasty tempers. They also, um, eat people, so that's probably even more of a concern. If you're dead set on it, though, they won't be too hard to find. They are giants, after all, so it's kind of difficult for them to hide. You can tell Cyclopes from other giants because they only have one big eye in the middle of their foreheads. Seriously, though, be careful. Otherwise, you might just end up being a tasty snack.
