This one has kept me stumped for a long time now. The truth of the matter is that I don’t have a favourite mythological animal.
There are plenty that I think are awesome and interesting. I’ve always loved the Kraken, Pegasus, Cerberus, the Chimera, etc, but I don’t think I’ve every really picked a favourite.
I did invent my own imaginary creature once, though. It was pretty cool. It looked like a cross between a cat and a monkey. It could climb trees and grab things with its tail. It also had a tongue similar to that of a parrot which made it a fantastic mimic.
As a carnivore, these abilities made it a fantastic hunter for its favourite food, birds. I don’t think I ever gave it a name. I may have to do that one of these days.
Do you have a favourite mythological creature? Have you ever made up your own type of animal?

I made up one for a socials project: a lion with wings and a unicorn horn as well as ram horns and really sharp teeth. It was made more to look cool than actually be useful though. Like, it would be an OK hunter but the wings would be fairly useless because it’s too heavy to be lifted up with them. Everything I added was more so it could intimidate its prey and predators.
Sounds great! Second cousin to a manticore maybe 😉
Hmmmmm…… I adore ‘mythological’ creatures, be they dragon, the phoenix, gryphon, etc….. I tend to live in a dreamland of mythological creatures….
