Pegasus

It’s time for another mythological creature, this time from Greek mythology!

The Pegasus is as most of you know a winged horse. It has appeared in several movies and videogames and is one of the most popular mythological creatures. In popular fiction there are often several of the creatures, but according to the legend of this magnificent beast there is actually only one.

The mother of Pegasus was the gorgon Medusa and the father was Poseidon who besides being ruler of the seas also is the horse god. The birth of this winged horse wasn’t a normal one though. *spoiler alert* It was born from Medusas blood when Perseus decapitated her. Now that would have been nice to see in the new movie version of Clash of the Titans, huh???
