Griffin - A mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. They are often associated with guarding gold and currency.

Chupacabra -Sightings of this unknown animal are reported in Puerto Rico, Mexico and the United States. Wildlife experts say its just an urban legend.

Cerberus - This creature is a dog with three heads. In Greek mythology this scary dog guards the gates of Hades.

Hydra - Another muti-headed creature. This Greek mythology water beast had nine heads. Hydra's bad breath would kill it's enemies.

Werewolf -It would be sweet to at any moment switch into a fierce Werewolf, but ancient mythology says Werewolf's were cursed.

Fairy - Pictured above, Fairy's are most often seen as a powerful, and good spirit.

Yeti - Sometimes called the Abominable Snowman, a Yeti is a giant Ape-ish creature whose power and strength are legendary.

Vampire - Best known for drinking the blood of their victims. BramStoker's 1897 book Dracula, remains popular even today.

Bigfoot - One of the most popular mythical creatures. Sightings have popped up all around the United States of this huge Ape-like giant.

The Loch Ness Monster - In 1933 a London man, George Spicer, claimed to have seen a dragon-like animal swimming in the Loch Ness Lake.

Grendel - If you get the chance, be sure to read Beowulf. In the story, Grendel is feared by everyone except Beowulf.

Unicorn - I was listening to the radio and Barry Zito said that even to this day he is fascinated by Unicorns. Interesting.

The Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison wrote The Invisible Man in 1953 and is a book worth checking out.

Kraken - You wouldn't want to run into one of these mythical giant sea creature on the open water. These beasts can swallow your boat whole.

Medusa - Be sure not to look into Medusa's eyes. This Greek mythology female monster will turn you into stone if you do.

Sphinx - When I think of a Sphinx, I think of the Egyptian Pyramids.  The mythical figure is a lion with a human head.

Minotaur - A Minotaur has the head of a bull and the body of a man.

Dragon - This creature spreads across all cultures, and is one of the most popular worldwide.

Leviathan - In Modern Hebrew, the word Leviathan is a whale. Ancient works depict  it as a giant sea monster.

Cyclops - These one-eyed beasts are ones you should stay away from.
