Example text

Some have speculated that the legend of the Cyclops may have come from ancient people finding the skull of a dwarf elephant; the single hole in its middle (actually for the trunk) would have looked to them like an eye socket in a giant head. 80. Sphinx: possessing the body of a lion and the head of a human (and sometimes the wings of a bird), the Sphinx would ask a riddle of those who wished to pass; those who could not answer correctly were devoured. Whereas the Greek Sphinx was female and merciless, the Egyptian Sphinx was male and benevolent.

Glawackus: the lumberjacks of early 20th century North America say this creature looked like a cross between a bear, a lion and a panther. Said to have attacked livestock in Connecticut and Massachusetts, the animal has never been caught despite a number of expeditions to find it. 65. Nimerigar: according to the Shoshone people who inhabit the Rocky Mountains in North America, a race of aggressive people called the Nimerigar lived around the Wind River in Wyoming; they were said to fire poisoned arrows at anyone who approached, using tiny well-crafted bows.

89. Grindylow: should a child get too close to a lake, a Grindylow with its long, sinewy arms will reach out and pull them in. Hailing from Yorkshire and Lancashire, the word Grindylow is thought to be associated with that of Grendel, a giant referenced in the epic poem Beowulf who is feared by all but the hero himself. 90. Kelpie: usually appearing as a horse (but in fact able to take on the form of a man or woman), this creature is a common water spirit inhabiting lochs and pools of water in Scotland.
