Hippogriff: A fabulous animal or monster, half horse and half griffon.
I have to be honest. I question their existence.
In the Harry Potter series, Buckbeak is a hippogriff.
The U.S. Air Force, 50th Space Wing uses a hippogriff as their symbol.
The word comes from the Greek word for horse, horse ιππος, (hippos), and the Greek word for griffin, γρύψ (grups).
Not sure what a griffin is? A griffin is a cross between an eagle and a lion. I do believe in griffins. But, hippogriffs?
That is just too fantastic for me.
