Heraldic creature with very strange name
The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews EdwardsThe title of this book could just as easily be pulp porn as a childrens book. In fact the first time I saw the title I really did think it was about something else Really Big. But there are lots of these innuendos hidden in childrens books from
Shel Silversteins The Missing Piece Meets the Big O,
Tom Swift and His Big Dirigible,
The Muffin Muncher
Dr. Seusss The Pocket Book of Boners

Luckily children do not have an adult sense of humour at all.

The first true bestiaries—exhaustive anthologies of the natural world—appeared in Ancient Greece. Originally, they were just a means of cataloguing and describing all known animals and plants both real and mythical , and in particular those that had curative or otherwise noteworthy uses. But by the Medieval period, when bestiaries became hugely popular, these descriptions had become overtly religious and allegorical, with many creatures listed as having miraculous powers, or depicted as symbols of redemption, salvation, and rebirth: the humble pelican, for instance, was once said to have the ability to bring its dead offspring back to life by piercing its side and feeding them its own blood according to one 13th century French scholar at least. One thing all bestiaries had in common, however, was that they mixed fact with fiction. Genuine accounts of real-life animals, birds, insects, plants, and gemstones were listed alongside ludicrous descriptions of bizarre, legendary animals—from magical birds that produced light-emitting feathers to bulls that could spray furlong-long jets of scalding poop.

The manticore Early Middle Persian Merthykhuwar ; Modern Persian Mardykhor is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx that proliferated in western European medieval art as well. It has the head of a human, body of a lion and a tail of venomous spines similar to porcupine quills, while other depictions have it with the tail of a scorpion. There are some accounts that the spines can be shot like arrows, thus making the manticore a lethal predator. It eats its victims whole, using its triple rows of teeth, and leaves no bones behind. The mantyger is a creature of medieval invention, having the body of a heraldic tiger with mane, and the head of an old man, the tusks of a boar and with long spiral horns.
