|Distinguishing Features:||Half eagle, half bird|
Hippogriffs are occasionally misidentified as a similar species, the Lesser Griffon, which it shares some traits with. They have the head, wings and forelimbs of an eagle, while their body is that of a horse. These creatures range in appearance and size depending on where in the world they're found, as their breeding populations are often separated by vast distances from one another.
Habitat varies on regional population and available prey, though their horse like bodies do tend to serve them best in open terrain rather than dense forests.
Breeding habits vary depending on specific populations.
