A griffin is a mythical creature that has the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, and the head and wings of an eagle.

It is sometimes depicted with a crest, a mane, or horse ears.

Griffins are often associated with ancient cultures of the Middle East and the Mediterranean, where they were used as symbols of power, protection, and divine authority.

They are also found in Greek, Roman, Persian, and Indian mythology, where they have various roles and stories.

Some of the legends say that griffins guard treasures, such as gold or the Tree of Life, or that they are enemies of horses and elephants.

Griffins are also said to be able to fly and breathe fire.

They are still popular in modern culture, appearing in many works of fantasy, art, and fiction.

Some examples are the griffin statues in Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series, the griffin family in the Percy Jackson books, and the griffin logo of Gryffindor House in the same series.

Griffins are also used as mascots, logos, or emblems for various schools, sports teams, military units, and organizations.

A griffin is a legendary creature that combines the features of a lion and an eagle.

It has the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, and the head, wings, and front legs of an eagle.

Its claws are sharp and powerful, and its beak is curved and hooked.

It is often depicted as a majestic and fierce animal, guarding treasures or sacred places.

Some variations of the griffin exist in different cultures and myths.

For example, some griffins have no wings, or have the ears of a horse.

Some griffins have the head of a hawk instead of an eagle, or have a serpent's tail.

Griffins are very ancient symbols, dating back to at least the 4th millennium BC.

They appear in the art and literature of many civilizations, such as the Sumerians, Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines.

They are also found in medieval and modern heraldry, fantasy, and popular culture.
