8 Amazing Mythological Monsters

Chimera 1 of 9

In mythology, the chimera is described as the offspring of two fearsome Greek gods, Typhon and Echidna. The chimera is definitely monstrous, with a body comprised of four different beasts. The features of chimera include:

  • The head and body of a lion
  • An additional goat's head
  • The midsection of a dragon
  • A snake's head on the end of the tail

If that wasn't fearsome enough, this beast also breathes fire and was a bad omen that signaled an oncoming natural disaster!
