The Hydra was the guardian of the underworld, slain by Hercules in Greek myth.

Another that will go up on Freaks, Mutants, and Monsters tomorrow:

Remember I post a new monster there every day (and only occasionally here on deviantart ;)

8.6.12 - Apparently this image gets around a lot, and is appearing on several dozen blogs., wikis, and other sites. My favorite so far is this page, where it appears they used it (without my permission) in some kind of political newspaper in Tajikistan:

Hi Hawanja,

Thanks,

I like how you have the heads an odd number - for some reason, they just seem to look better than if they have an even number of heads...

The Hydra has a Japanese counterpart, the Yamata no Orochi (Eight Branched Giant Snake). It was slain by a storm deity by the name of Susanoo
