  1. A unicorn! I never thought that a griffon or a dragon would look like a dinosaur, well a dragon might look like a dinosaur. A griffon might be kind of cool! I heard what they look like in a couple books. I learned about the manatee and mermaids from the Brains On podcast. Lol I think these creatures, even though they are imaginary, sound kind of interesting and okay sometimes scary.
