Manticore is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx.

Manticore is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx that proliferated in western European medieval art as well.

It has the head of a human, the body of a lion and a tail of venomous spines similar to porcupine quills, while other depictions have it with the tail of a scorpin 🦂.

There are some accounts that the spines can be shot like arrows, thus making the manticore a lethal predator.

It devours its prey whole, using its triple rows of teeth, leaving no traces of its victims (including bones) behind.

Some sources identify the manticore with the mantyger, while others regard the mantyger as a quite different creature.
