AlphaBeasts Week III: C is for Chimera Picture

It's time for another weekly alphabetical project! Instead of living, breathing animals, we're now doing an A-to-Z of mythical creatures and fictional monsters called ALPHABEASTS!

My submission for "C" is the Chimera, a creature from Greek mythology, found in the mountainous region of Lycia in modern day Turkey. It was a fire-breathing lioness with a goat's head protruding from its back and a snake's head on the end of its tale.

From the Wikipedia entry:

The Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. The term chimera has also come to describe any mythical animal with parts taken from various animals and, more generally, an impossible or foolish fantasy.
