This Stymphalian bird depiction was the inspiration for the design of one of many Dragon characters of a fantasy series I've been working on.

I've heard poisonous blood, but maybe that version was made up to make it more polite... To be fair I'm pretty sure I've heard other alternatives, guess they're of ambiguous form.

Either way, he looks gorgeous!
