A gryphon.

I guess it would have some trouble getting airborne with a big body like that, and such poor excuses for wings :).

The first Anonymous is right; griffins do have ears, but they are like feathery tufts. Kind of like an owl, but on the sides of the head. But then you can make a griifin however you want. I ,mean they are not real, right?

Wow. Very unconventional. Kind of reminds me of one of the monsters from the 'monster munch' packets.

Although it is pretty well known that many species of griffins have ears or ear tufts, this is a totally different species of griffin, one that has adapted to different surroundings, and may have no need for ears of a lion. Also, lion ears are not a necessity in any griffin, because the simple and universal idea of a griffin is a beast with the head of an eagle (king of the air) and the body of a lion (king of beasts). Because the head on a griffin is that of an eagle, ear tufts are not a determining factor about the realism of a griffin, no matter the species.

Wow! ! ! Something about the humondo beak and the little squinty eyes makes this species of griffins seem completely adorable, even if they would tear you to shreds without a second thought! Beautiful, and just about as lifelike as a sixed limbed flesh eating monster can get!

No wonder he is in such a bad mood. All his peers are probably making fun of his un-fly’nes.
