It could be, a expression very ordinary.

Here in Mexico, the people use that expression only for middle friendships.

I'm sorry, Jane, I was kidding. Ser una loba means to be a men-devour. The only context on which this saying could have another meaning is in a safari... Have you been to a safari recently?

I guessed you were...
and you probably meant man-eater /devourer.
I haven´t been to a safari in 16 years.

So that means you're not a werewolf but a man-eater.
