"They were not any birds or bats known elsewhere on earth or in dreamland, for they were larger than elephants and had heads like a horse's. Carter knew that they must be the shantak-birds of ill rumour, and wondered no more what evil guardians and nameless sentinels made men avoid the boreal rock desert."

 - H. P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

No MLP these !

Ware if somebody offers you a ride on one of these. Likely, it's been given instructions to ignore YOUR commands and bear you to where no sane person would go.
