I mean mythical creatures like mermaids, werewolves, and bigfoot. How were real animals an inspiration for those mythical creatures back in ancient times when these myths were created.

I would assume using real animals as inspiration for mythical creatures was basically the fan fiction before fan fiction. Some crazies we all like "Bird really did have feelings for lizard." or "So all the other animals are dead and turtle and cat need to repopulate."

The very first religions were Pagans which often worshipped the natural world, I think you'll find more answers if you take a look into Native American religions and mythologies
