This week's creature feature is: Pegasus


From Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegasus and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegasus_… :

In Greek mythology, Pegasus was a winged horse sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa. By extension, the term Pegasus can also refer to any winged horse.
While the Pegasus of myth is typically depicted as a winged horse, the pegasi of Dungeons & Dragons have other avian features as well. Their lower legs are feathered instead of furred, and their manes and tails are also of feathers. They also lay eggs, like a bird, instead of giving birth to live young. They mature at the same rate as a horse, however, and have similar habits.
Pegasi are highly prized for their value as aerial steeds, but being wild and shy magical creatures, they are not easily tamed. The most common way they are trained as these steeds is from their eggs being stolen and the creatures being raised from birth. Sometimes a grown pegasus may be tamed provided that the creature has a friendly attitude to the tamer. Riding one requires six weeks of training, and an exotic saddle, but they make worthy steeds indeed. Being goodly creatures, they will only serve good or neutral riders with an absolute faithfulness for life.
The winged horse that has provided an instantly recognizable corporate logo or emblem of inspiration, has found many uses in market-driven popular culture.
