Bassa meets the hydra!

In Greek mythology, the Lernaean Hydra was a terrifying serpent like beast that possessed many heads. It would attack herds of cattle and local villagers, totally terrorizing the land.

One of its heads could never be harmed by any weapon, and if any of the other heads were severed another would grow in its place.

It sounds very scary.

I was relieved to hear that it was eventually killed by Heracles as the second of his Twelve Labours.

Well done Heracles!

I do like a good myth.

However, you can imagine my surprise when I found the remains of the terrifying serpent like beast in my neighborhood!

Someone must have dug it up, not knowing what it was and although it is long dead it still looks very scary.

Hmm, I do hope it is dead.
