He thus became the only person to have heard their song and lived to tell the tale. 75. Gorgon: Gorgons are amongst the oldest creatures described in Greek Mythology, possibly dating back more than three thousand years. A female creature with the ability to turn anyone who laid eyes upon it into stone, the Gorgons (of which later accounts say they were three: Euryale, Sthenno and Medusa) possessed scales which would deflect any sword, hands made of brass, fangs, beards and of course a hairstyle of living snakes.

It is possible to catch one of these creatures by heaping rice at the village crossroads; the Soucouyant will begin to gather it up grainby-grain at night - a task which takes so long that she can be caught in the act the very next day. 69.

Skunk Ape: essentially the Bigfoot of South-eastern USA, the Skunk ape is also referred to as the Swamp Ape, Stink Ape or Myakka Ape. A foul-smelling hominid, this ape-like creature who walks on two legs has even been captured on camera (although some dispute the photos, saying they have been manipulated).
