Hydras are well known for their hundred heads. When one head is
cut off two heads grow in its place. Hydras look like devilish snakes and
have poisonous breath. Heracles (better known as Hercules) figured out that
to beat the hydra he should set fire to its necks so no heads would grow
back. This vicious creature is very evil and well known in the Greek Mythology.
