It is said that the pegasus sprang from the blood dripping neck of Gorgan
Medusa after her head was cut off by Perseus. This beautiful winged horse
was rode by Bellerophon, and helped to kill the dragon, Chimera. Although

cousin, the unicorn, it is different. Unlike unicorns, pegasus have wings
and they don't always have horns on their forheads. They are very beautiful
creatures. Click here to go back to the horse page.
