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 interesting creature is the Quinotaur. It is believed to be a sea creature. It is mentioned in the Frankish Chronicle of Fredegar. The term means bull with five horns. The lore behind it is that it attacked the wife of a king and sired children with her. More information can be found here.

I’ve never heard of the quinotaur before, only the minotaur – interesting 🙂

It is. I found out about it when I was trying to come up with a creature that started with Q and it led me to a list and this one just sort of stood out against the rest.
So it’s a sea cow? Wonder if the manatee inspired that creature as well?
That’s an interesting question. They could have.
Thanks for making me aware of the quinotaurs. Had never head of it before.
This is a new one on me, I always like to find out about new creatures. Five horns seems a little excessive :).
