This week's creatures is the Cerberus.
Known as the mythical ancestor of the black dogs of European mythology. Cerberus is the hellhound that guards the gate of the Underground in Greek mythology.Cerberus makes sure that no living creature steps foot into the Underground and that no spirit escapes.
Hesiod said the creature is huge and fierce, with 50 heads. Also, that the creature is an offspring of Echidna, the mother of all monsters, and Typhon, one of the sons of Gaia. Most other writers said that Cerberus had only three heads, the tail of a serpent, and each head's manes contained snakes.
