Mystical or mythical creatures date back to the beginning of time, as many them were created in some of the earliest forms of storytelling. In different cultures and mythologies, these animals represent different things; from good luck and honor to bad omens and love, these creatures were a significant part of tales that we hear today.
While preexisting animals inspired many of them, many of them were taken straight out of people's imaginations. The most popular mystical creatures include dragons, unicorns, fairies, elves, merpeople, centaurs, and griffins, amongst many others. For centuries, there have been stories told of these creatures, some people swearing that they have had personal encounters support their claims, which sometimes makes them appear unstable or insane. Hollywood has also taken a liking to our fascination with these animals as they have been portrayed in multiple movies and television shows.
