As of 2018, The Higgs Weldon has been up and running for 5 years. To celebrate, we are re-publishing some of our favorite pieces from over the years for the entire month of January. This article was originally published on September 1, 2014.

Chimera 2

Chimera 2

With a goat’s body, a ram’s head, and the tail of a sheep this crazy concoction of a monster will keep even the most avid Greek mythology fans in awe!

This creature was believed to be created by the Nymph Nephele, the same Nymph who created the Golden Ram. Although most people believe this creature is mythological, next time you’re close to a ram, take a closer look. Maybe you’ll find that its tail is oddly similar to a sheep’s tail!

Wingless and Legless Pegasus


This is no ordinary horse, it’s a Pegasus! And this is no ordinary Pegasus, it has some fantastical alterations. Not only does it not have wings, but it doesn’t have legs either!

Although this bizarre being only appears in a few myths, it has captivated the hearts and minds of young equestrians everywhere. Who wouldn’t want a Pegasus to ride, especially if that Pegasus was without wings and legs!

Reverse Medusa


This deadly monster has the face and body of a snake, and the hair of a human! If you gaze into its eyes you’ll be turned to stone, but gaze into its hair and be impressed with its thick, golden locks!

This monster dwelled in a cave until it was defeated by Hercules. Hercules offered to give the reverse Medusa’s hair a trim, and after a shampoo and a cut, Hercules held out a mirror and told it to “take a look and see if it wanted to add bangs.” The reverse Medusa instantly turned to stone upon seeing its reflection. Mythological!

Minotaur’s Son: Hoofy


This terrifying creature is the only heir to the infamous labyrinth guarded by the minotaur. With the body and head of a human, but the hands and feet of a cow, this monster can only be defeated by doorknobs.

Sphinx Where the Woman Part isn’t Super-Hot


This may be the most chilling creature of all! Just like the famous Sphinx, this ancient monster has the body of a lion, the wings of an eagle, and the bust and head of a woman. However this Sphinx’s head and boobs aren’t super attractive like most Sphinxes. No, this terrible monster is probably a 5 at best. Chilling!



This is a harp with eyeballs. It waits for someone to pick it up and start playing it, then it scares them with its glistening eyeballs!
