    I've been doing an A-Z hub of Mythological Creatures. I'm on C now. So far I'm loving it. Hey, what's your favorite Mythological Creature? It could be from Greek, Roman, African, Chinese, Japanese, Celtic, Norse, Indian or whatever Pantheon. This oughta be fun.

      In Hindu mythology, there are several creatures which can be mentioned .I just picked up two :

      1.Garura : A large bird, Parentage is an interesting story. Lord Vishnu rides on him. An enemy of snakes.

      2.Suravi : Celestial cow.When she wishes, she can fulfill yours with material gifts.

      Best wishes.

    I would have to say it's the Black Dog from British Isles folklore.

    My favourite is Jormungandr, the World Serpent. It is from Norse mythology, and is the World Serpent that encircled the earth, holding its tail in its mouth. The serpent and Thor killed each other at Ragnorak.

    I also like the Greek Dryads, beautiful spirits that live inside trees. Some of the olive trees here are very beautiful, and it is nice to imagine a spirit inside every one.

    I like the Great Nargun from Australian Aboriginal mythology.

    A Nargun is a magical rock, and the Great Nargun is the oldest living Nargun, so it is both the most powerful, and the smallest, since rocks erode ...

    Vampires. Gotta be the vampires.

    And so much for my idea of doing a list of mythological creatures. Guess I'll do expanded articles on specific creatures.

      You might wanna do a search first. I'm doing A-Z of all mythological creatures from all pantheons worldwide. I'm about doing 'D' now. Making it the fifth hub. I split 'B' into two parts.
