Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ypotryll is a legendary creature featured in heraldry. It is a type of chimera with the tusked head of a boar, humped body of a camel, legs and hooves of an ox or goat and tail of a serpent.

Its name probably derives from the Greek "hippo-", horse (cf. Middle English "ypotame", hippopotamus).
