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!
