The chimera is another creature from Typhon and Echidna. According to Homer, the chimera had a lion head, a goat middle, and a snake behind. Hesiod said the chimera had three heads and the goat head can breathe fire.
In Greek mythology, Bellerophon kills the chimera with the help of Pegasus. He attaches a block of lead to the end of his spear and shoves it into its throat. The lead melts and the chimera suffocates.
