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.
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.
Thor battling Jormundgandr
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.
Love the Dragon, Satan is a red dragon, but there are so many
other kinds really, I use the dragon in many of my flash
fiction stories, in fact latest poem take on jabberwocky
called Dragonwoccky just written a few days ago.
Bahh-Imamessok... The Thothian Light Traveller... Bumble Town's Best.
Phoenix, cause it is rises from the ashes after it gets burnt - something we're constantly doing in life... well something like that. ashes to ashes
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 ...
all my favorites sound cliche as heck. but if i had to pick one i most closely relate to, it would be the mermaid.
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.
that flying dog thing on the 80's movie, The Never Ending Story...

Mythological creatures are the basis of every culture, but what do they do exactly, and what do they stand for? When you name your favorite mythological creature, no matter what part of the world, tell the world why you choose this particular creature.
