The “Scorpion Men” are talked about in many myths from different cultures. They are mentioned in the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh for guarding Shamash, the sun god.

According to Aztec myth, Xolotl was the god of roads and travel and his sister was Tonantzin. He became lonely when weird mythical creatures grew weary of his company.

Mythical creatures such as the Erymanthian boar have always been an enigma to us. However, recently we’ve begun to wonder if this behemoth of a creature was based on something that actually existed. Residing in the vicinity of Mount Erymanthus. The boar is known for its long, sharp canines that can gash and impale anyone who has ventured into the wrong territory. Even though the boar is a mythical creature, it happens to be a strange one!

Contrary to what many people think, most monsters and ‘evil’ character types are not always shown as ‘evil’. More often than not they possess human qualities such as arrogance, fear and greed. These are the same human flaws that all of us have to a certain degree. The real difference between people is how much these flaws manifest themselves in them.

Google is one of many words in the English language that have been converted into verbs. It has nothing to do with the company Google, but instead is derived from its original meaning of intensive research. It was coined shortly after Google launched their search engine due to its ability to provide so much information in just a few clicks.

Hecatoncheires (from Greek mythology)

Hectocotines (The Three Monstrous Giants) were the children of Gaia and Uranus. Their chief attributes were their awesome size, the number of arms and heads they had- 100 and fifty respectively- but also their monstrous ugliness. Even Uranus was taken back by their appearance so he banished them to the underworld of Tartarus.

Kludde (from Belgian folklore)

There is some debate about their appearance in stories, with it being unclear whether they have a blue-green glow. This is not something I experienced when I met one of these creatures. I can’t really remember any of the details about this “demon dog.” All I remember is that it was a wolf-like creature with blue, luminous fur.

Ogopogo (from Native American mythology)

At last, we have a ‘water serpent’ that is based in the ocean. It has the appearance of having affable flippers along its flanks and ominous horns along its head. Its name translates to Ogopogo in the native language of the region. It is said to lurk in the Okanagan Lake, and offer ‘presents’ of dead fishes and live cattle to the creature.

Sleipnir (from Norse mythology)

The fastest monster is probably the eight-legged giant horse  Sleipnir. It was used by Odin as his personal mount, so it allowed him to travel at lightning speed from Asgard to earth and back again.All that speed was not just for bragging rights. It was important for the welfare of the gods and their interactions with humans on Earth.
