I love the unicorn, too. I've learned that in days of old, it was the symbol of many christian churches and that it stood for the christ-child. Of course, they gave the unicorn back to us. Wonder why? hehe' http://www.mythforum.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gifkarenlyn;359 said:There are so many mythological and legendary creatures in literature. What is your favorite fantasy animal/creature?
I like the Griffin because they're powerful and proud and beautiful. I'd also love to see a unicorn!
I guess this is one of the types of selkies... the Irish are great for inventing mythical beasts. But they also use more common animals too; the raven is my favorite amongst these animals. It is a herald of death on the battlefield. I also like the changelings that are said to be the offspring of the Fairies, and are often switched with human children. But I think that the Victorians may have twisted the changelings to be more "evil" than they once were.frang;461 said:the Dobhar-Chú, a legendary creature of Ireland. The name translates as "water-dog," but by all reports it is a giant otter, perhaps King of all the otters.:
