Mythological Creature; Amphiptere, a European hybrid-snake and bat or bird with comparisons from other cultures- With Guest Writing Prompt about snakes — ARJung

An Amphiptere is a hybrid from on European heraldry, part snake and part bird or bat. Heraldry is a broad term, encompassing the design, display, and study of armory or armor, as well as related disciplines, such as vexillology (flag design,) together with the study of ceremony, rank, and pedigree. Throughout Europe, the amphiptere was widely feared, so all who displayed it on their coat of arms would be perceived as particularly fearsome in battle.
