The Manticore

The Manticore is a legendary creature similiar to a sphinx but described as a lion with the head of an old man, rows of incredibly sharp teeth and a tail that can fire deadly quills at its victim.

The Manticore is often seen as dangerous, aggressive, and predatory, using its quills to poison or paralyse a victim before devouring them with its many rows of teeth - many people used to blame missing people on this beast and it may of had some inspiration from the rare phenomena of man-eating lions and tigers.

The aManticore can be also be depicted as having wings, horns or both and although they are usually described as having the paws of a normal lion some depict them with the feet of dragons - the tail can either resemble that of a scorpion or that of a dragon.
