The very first appearance of the magical and mystical unicorns was mentioned in the Bible (Numbers 24:8) and in many other medieval works and places. Even the Roman historians believed in the existence of Unicorns! Incredible stories about unicorns? Definitely yes. Do they really exist? Sadly no.
Wow....people in the past sure had a wild imagination. Apparently, this Bonnacon was a mystical creature, having a horse's mane and a bull's body. It used its poop as a weapon! It's said that it's poop was acidic and the Bonnacon could shoot it over 600 meters at the enemies.

Okay...this is quite surprising. Surprising that people actually believed this...uhm...stuff. This rumor began in the Middle Ages and was spread by a person known as Rabbi Yohanan of Jerusalem. It was a special lamb grown from plants.
'Aspidochelone' means...quite simply put is a huge creature with a back so big that it looked like an island. Stories of this creature were seen first in Christian and then in medieval texts(anyone noticing a pattern here?)
Of all the things on this list, the thing I most wish was real is this one. The horned rabbit sightings go all the way back to the 17th century with numerous tales spread across centuries.
#3 De Loys' Ape

Hate to break it to you GOT fans but dragons are nothing but a figment of our imagination. These fiery breathing creatures were first mentioned by Chinese scholar Lei Xiao.
