The Hydra

The Hydras many long necks rowed back and forth as it showed of his millions of sharp white teeth. Each one of his necks held about twenty pointed horns, all perked up ready for the kill. Already he looked terrifying but that wasn’t his worst. Two huge black eyes were perched onto each of his heads, staring down like saucers. It was like a dragon with multiple heads but very much worse. On the tip of all his noses were two horns, like rhinos, but shorter and defiantly sharper. A long forked tong rolled out of his mouth, sniffing the air around him. As he breathed you could see its muscles tensing and the relaxing. This was only from his neck upwards. What was below was unknown.

As the heads started to rise the body was revealed. Sunlight reflected off his smooth skin. If I had not been for his fearsome heads or crisp spines it would have been a wondrous sight. But this, but this was the kind of thing you would prefer to see on television, not up front. In fact if it had seen you that would almost defiantly be the last thing you ever saw. It was a living killing machine. Just one stab from the spikes on his back I enough to kill you, let alone being ripped into shreds by its powerful jaws. A long tail swished up suddenly –it made an almighty thud as it hit the ground-, cracking the stone floor. His tremendous roar broke the long silence. Even the roar was potentially deadly on this terrifying beast. The Hydra made his move…

 

Four sharp claws lunged, digging into the ground as he landed. Each foot held three extremely muscular toes, all with their own claw. The legs are what you would expect from a dragon, large and muscular (they had to be muscular to hold up his body). All the worst nightmares had been collected together in this beast. Everyone feared it. Many times people had tried to defeat it, but all had failed. Even if a weapon powerful enough existed, the Hydra would strike first. Who would dare challenge the Hydra?
