At Saudi Aramco World, Robert Lebling delves deep into tales of the strange creatures of Mesopotamia – and there’s far more than a few of them!
He says: “In all the stories, the monsters take their shapes from our fears of the unknown—be it apprehensions about nocturnal noises from a forest, or worries over the ominous intentions of races in far-off lands described by returning sailors. Evidently, some monsters that first materialize on a remote continent find ways to migrate to one’s own land and take up residence in a nearby wilderness or wasteland.”
