Bronze griffin water spout sculpture on the ""Seven chieftains of the Magyars" fountain - Mátészalka, Hungary Bronze griffin water spout sculpture on the ""Seven chieftains of the Magyars" fountain

The griffin (aka griffon or gryphon) is a mythological or legendary creature with the body of a lion, as well as the wings, head and talons (on the forelimbs) of an eagle. Some scientists believe that the "animal" was created in the ancient people's mind based on a skull of a Protoceratops herbivorous dinosaur, which was found in gold mines in Central Asia, in the area of the present-day Kazakhstan. The Protoceratops was a so-called "beaked" dinosaur, a smaller ancestor of the well-known triple-horned Triceratops. This "beak" looked like the toothless, sharp mouth of the turtles and was used to graze the vegetation.
