Unicorn-the legendary weird horse

-from Latin unus 'one' and cornu 'horn'
-is a legendary creature
-the modern popular image of the unicorn is sometimes that of a horse differing only
in the horn on its forehead
-the traditional unicorn has a billy-goat beard, a lion's tail, and a cloven hooves - these distinguish it from a horse
-Marianna Mayer has observed (The Unicorn and the Lake), "The unicorn is
the only fabulous beast that does not seem to have been conceived out of human
fears.In evens the earliest references he is fierce yet good, selfless yet solitary,
but always mysteriously beautiful. He could be captured only by unfair means, and
his single horn was said neutralize poison"
