GRIFFIN (GRYPHON) - In Greek mythology, griffins contain an eagle's head and lion's body. They believed that they were guardians of treasure. Fun fact: the legend of the griffin is believed to have formed from a few instances of fossilized remains of large creatures found near gold deposits. These remains are now believed to pterodactyl fossils.
