Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Manticore

All too often we find ourselves talking about chimeras here, and sure enough I have another one for you. The chimera we will be talking about today is closely related to the sphinx. You can see some of the similarities with the manticore having a lion like body and human head. But the creature also has several rows of sharp shark teeth, the tail of a scorpion, and occasionally large bat-like wings. This creature is not one you want to mess with, and continue on for some of the best appearances of this creature in modern culture.
