Origins of Myth

The bones of the dimetrodon discovered by ancient Greeks were the inspiration for a classical and persistent mythological monster.

What do we have here?

body and tail of a lion,
head and claws of an eagle,
and long support bones,
. . . it must be a GRIFFIN !


  1. I always thought the griffin had a monoceratops head, what with the beak and all.

  2. it is true that monoceratops has a better 'beak', but
    no bones that could be mistaken for wings ; - )
