Personal work, the Tarasca 🦁🐢🦂 a terrible lion with a turtle shell and scorpion tail. A monster of the European mythology.

Reminds me of a Hodag. I've only seen one of those in a taxidermy museum.

Ah, the terrible and terrifying Tarasca. Born of a turtle, son of a bastard scorpion, and nephew of a lion, its majestic, spiky shell, shaggy fur, and soul stabbing eyes are what make it such a feared beast. Despite what I'm saying now, I wouldn't go near that monster if you held a musket to my back, I just wanted to sound eloquent. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna hide under my bed with my lifetime supply of carrots and frog videos until that thing goes away. Nice artwork, by the way. Very weird, very wonderful.

Feline turtle monster, also a scorpion tail, definitely not something your adventurers are looking forward to dealing with.
