Although he's the perfect pet for Medusa [#26], you probably wouldn't want this monster sleeping under your bed at night. Catoblepas has the wings of a dragon, the body of a buffalo and the head of a wild hog. He not only can't fly, but frags his stomach through the mud as he lazily waddles across the ground. Catoblepas rarely lifts his fat head to look up, but if he does - watch out! His stare will turn you to stone faster than you can say "Buffalo Wings", (which incidentally were named afte rhim). So if you happen to come upon Catoblepas as he is out grazing on his favorite snack of poison ivy, beware of his stare as it will bring new meaning to the words "stone age!"
2006 Card Text: Born in Africa thousands of years ago, Catoblepas is 4 feet high with 4 foot dragon wings, but he can't fly. Beware of this monster who walks with his head near the ground. If he looks up and you look into his eyes, you die.
