My penultimate (love that word!) post for the A to Z Blogging Challenge of 2015 is the Ypotryll. Y was almost as difficult as X!
This creature has the tusked head of a boar, the body of a camel, legs of an ox, and a serpent’s tail.
A person picked these bits and pieces of various animals to represent his title or family name. Maybe they pulled the animals and parts from a hat to decide.
Have you decided on your heraldic beast yet?
