This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.
I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. 🙂
Today’s lucky creature comes from Greek mythology once again. It’s the Minotaur. It’s rumored that the Minotaur had the head of a bull on the body of a human man. Asterion was the proper name used for the minotaur in Crete. The name was shared with King Minos foster father. The minotaur was eventually killed by Theseus. To read more about the minotaur check out the wiki page here.

Didn’t he live in a maze?
Yes, he did. 🙂
I did not know the minotaur had another name. Thanks for the info 🙂

You’re welcome. 🙂
I’m finding out all kinds of new info while I’m researching these creatures. It’s been fun.
That picture is kind of awesome.
Hope you’re enjoying the A to Z Challenge! My theme is Memorable Characters. Glad to have met you!
Thanks for stopping by. The picture is cool. 🙂
he did indeed – I always felt a little sorry for the beastie when I was a girl – to be locked up in a maze underground and be reviled because he killed people seemed unjust to me – I would have killed people if that was my life as well:)
The minotaur is a bit misunderstood. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
MInotaurs misery and loneliness must have been suffocating. Like you way of thinking.
I agree. I feel sorry for them when I read a story that has them in it. 🙂
Minotaurs fascinated me when I studied Greek mythology. Popping by from A to Z. You have a wealth of info. Good hopping with the other hop!
Thanks for stopping by. I love Greek mythology. 🙂
Hope you’re enjoying your first A to Z Challenge. Greek mythology is fascinating.
I’m really enjoying it. It’s been fun. Yes, it is. I’m taking an online class this summer about greek mythology. 🙂
I always feel sorry for the Minotaur stuck in that labyrinth all by himself.

Yeah, he’s one of those creatures you can’t help but feel sorry for.
Why is it that my mind immediately goes to Gauntlet when I see the word Minotaur?
