Thoth was the Egyptian god of the moon, magic, the calendar, the art of writing and wisdom. Thoths sacred animals are the ibis and baboon.
The association with the ibis is due to when the Nile overflows, the ibises return to Egypt, marking a period on the calendar. Also, writing pens were made of their feathers.
