Historical Background

A legendary animal from Ethiopia first described by Pliny the Elder in his travels. It had the body of a buffalo and the head of a hog. Its stare or its breath, depending on the account, could either turn people into stone or kill them instantly. It was considered a sluggish animal and had a heavy head, with its face always looking down at the ground. Claudius Aelianus, a Roman author, who wrote On the Nature of Animals described the Catoblepas as a medium-sized herbivore (roughly the size of a bull) with a heavy mane, beady eyes and shaggy eyebrows. He depicted the animal as having a poison breath, which derived from eating poisonous vegetation. It is believed that both figures were describing a real animal, the gnu, a type of wildebeest. Its name means "downward-looking" in Greek.
