Chimaera

Chimaera

The Chimaera was a frightening creature with the front of a lion, the middle of a goat, the rear of a dragon, and the heads of all three creatures. This Chimaera was capable of breathing fire from its mouths, and its breath was like the fumes in a volcano. It lived in the mountains of Lycia in Greece and roamed the mountains of Asia Minor until it was slain by the hero Bellerophon.
