Indrik-Beast: In Russian folklore, the Indrik-Beast (Russian: Индрик-зверь, transl.: Indrik zver' ) is a fabulous beast, the king of all animals, who lives on a mountain known as "The Holy Mountain" where no other foot may tread. When it stirs, the Earth trembles. The word "Indrik" is a distorted version of the Russian word edinorog (unicorn)." The Indrik is described as a gigantic bull with legs of a deer, the head of a horse and an enormous horn in its snout, vaguely similar to a rhinoceros.
The Unicorn has existed in Chinese mythology for thousands of years. It appears in many different forms, but the most familiar is a beast with the body of a deer, the tail of an ox, the hooves of a horse, and a single short horn growing out of the middle of its forehead.
