Famous Mythical Creatures Of Every US State (Illustrated)

Welcome to the American bestiary catalog! A catalog full of animals, birds, and other interesting natural (or sometimes imaginary) phenomena. 

According to this 12th century author, the purpose of bestiary is "to improve the minds of ordinary people, in such a way that the soul will at least perceive physically things which it has difficulty grasping mentally: that what they have difficulty comprehending with their ears, they will perceive with their eyes."

Thanks to CashNetUSA, for assembling all the greatest mythical creatures within the US, and illustrating them so wonderfully!

Flying Peacocks Totally Look Like Mythical Creatures

The peacock is the stylish of birds. After all, they do have over 200 colorful elongated feathers that attract not just their potential partners, but many people's attention and cameras, too. Few people get a chance to see these birds off a ground, but they can, indeed, fly. Though usually peacocks do that in case of danger, rather than pleasure. When predators appear, birds start running and flutter into the air. Surprisingly, the long feathers don't affect their take-offs. The distance might be limited, but they can speed up to 16 km/h (10 mph)!

Rami has been traversing the Internet this morning after his picture turned up on the Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society's Facebook page.

He's currently available for adoption and the requests are flooding in to the small shelter in Georgia. It would be well worth any pilgrimage to get in some snuggle time with Rami.



29,000 requests doesn't seem like enough to fully appreciate that face.



Whether we call him dachbull or a pitshund, we must deduce that if this majestic pup exists, unicorns probably do too.
