Region of origin: La Ferté-Bernard, France

With a name meaning “hairy,” the peluda was covered in poison-tipped “hairs” it could harden into quills and fire as projectiles, or soften and use as whip-like tendrils. An ancient beast, it was supposedly denied access to Noah’s arc and instead survived the flood by hiding out in a cave in northern France until it was safe to emerge, from where it proceeded to terrorize the countryside.
