Mythological water creature #4 Lernaean Hydra

Lernaean Hydra is a water beast from Greek mythology. Hydra had reptile like traits and possessed many heads. If one of its head was cut, it grew two more in its place.

Hydra has poisonous breath and is so venomous that even its tracks are deadly. It is supposed to guard the entrance to the underworld. Hmm,underworld really seems to have better security arrangements.
