Knucker is a dialect word for a kind of water dragon, living in knuckerholes in Sussex, England. The word comes from the Old English nicor which means "water monster" and is used in the poem Beowulf.
The Dragon to be found in the Knucker Hole near Lyminster was a rampaging beast, killing livestock and humans (though some say only fair damsels), much to the annoyance of the locals. Though a water monster, it is said that the beast could fly and terrorised the countryside for miles around. One story says that the monster aggravated the King of Sussex himself to such an extent that he offered the hand of his daughter to anyone who could kill the beast. A wandering knight accomplished this in bloody combat and settled down in Lyminster with the King's daughter, where his gravestone can be seen at the church.

Terminando uno que había dejado sin terminar. El mes de septiembre corresponde a la Rakshasi. Un ser de la mitología hinduista cuya forma podía variar, la más conocida es la que toma rasgos de felino.

Dragons The Modern Infestation is probably my favorite book on dragons. There is nothing historical in this book. Instead it is a quirky, extremely dry scientific naturalist study of dragons written by a Verminologist. Dragons are pesky, indifferent, occasional trouble makers that rarely show interest in humans - unless they are raiding to add to a hoard. This book also has many photographs that supposedly show dragons in different activities, but instead the pics are mostly arrows pointing at nothing with detailed descriptions. (Which I find hilarious). This book is from 1980. The 80’s produced several books on mythical creatures written in a quasi scientific manner. It used to be I could always find a copy of this book in used book stores, but I haven’t seen one for awhile. So I recommend grabbing a copy if you see it. A great book to add to your #bestiary. (And that little guy in the pic is my first #windstoneeditions dragon from my sister when I was around 8 years old.) #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #booklife #bookcollection #bookcollector #folklore #dragonbook #verminology #dragonsthemoderninfestation #windstoneeditionsbabydragon

Of all the books, this one is the favored one for me. I love my bestiaries :D

The second part, deal about animals, birds, fish and other creatures of the myth, such the dragon, the harpy, the unicorn, and many others strange creatures like a real medieval bestiary.

🧜 NEW CREATURE in the Bestiarum! Finishing out #Mermay with MELUSINE , the lovely fairy maiden cursed to be a half-serpent by her mother, Pressyne. Not quite a mermaid, she's probably more closely related to the Starbucks siren... Lots of lore surrounding her including: The Tale of Melusine, Robin Hood (a descendant of hers!), The Legend of the Eaten Heart, & The Knight of Swans. Link in bio ☝☝ 📷 François Nodot, Histoire de Melusine (Paris, 1698). [Public Domain]

Miehlictus, a rare fungi that animates the dead and mutates the flesh, molding bone and flesh as bladed apendages, while growing inside, the great diference between this and every other species of parasitic fungi is that it comunicates with other colonies living in other dead hosts telepatically... incredibly dangerous, but with a easy and deadly weakness...fire does the trick...just dont breathe it while you burn them or it will poison you, and when dead take your body as a new host #art #drawings #drawing #undead #fungi #deadly #monster #instart #bestiary

A skelletal construct...they are magically created by powerfull sorcerors, but although scary and powerfull skelletal constructs requirr huge amount of power to function, so they guard only the most flamboiant magic user, as the practical ones would have a guardian that wouldnt drain their magic pool dry #art #drawing #death #skeleton #dragon #undead #bone #horror #bestiary #magic #skull #construct #gollem

На днях где-то в зарослях рядом с бассейном "Чайка" искала вход в небольшой книжный магазин, в котором должна была забрать заказ – сборник про бестиарии. И как выяснилось, мне нужны были эти ворота. Ну. Почти.) #москва #moscow #бестиарий #bestiary #книжный #bookshop

"Существа из мифологии". Арахноморф. Огромные черные пауки размером с корову обитающие в пещерах, густых лесах, на болотах. #бестиарий#арахноморф#арахна#Arachnomorph#инсектоиды#bestiary#art#folklore#фольклор #sketch#watercolorart#watercolor#mythology#tale#monsters#monstrum#story#fairytales#nix#Wiedźmin#thewitcher#Bestiariusz#fantasy#fairy#fantasyart#монстры#monster
