Ever wonder what's the name of that thing that has the body of a lion, face of a man and tail of a scorpion? (a manticore!) Well then this is the place for you! We're bringing you a veritable monster manual of human civilization. Everyday, we'll post a new and interesting mythical creature. Posts can include pictures, historical & cultural information, and anything that applies to the day's creature. We're avoiding discussion of fantasy creatures from games and movies, but instead focusing on "actual" animals from historical myth and folklore. Please feel free to comment with additional links, stories and other information.
