(Greek Creature) HIPPOKAMPOI

Also known as HIPPOCAMPUS, HIPPOKAMPOS

Sea horses. They were the preferred mode of transport for the Nereids, and Poseidon used four of them to pull his chariot.

Well, they weren't all sea-horse, they were fish from the chest down, but it's very important not to get them confused with a Hippopotamus which has neither a horses head nor a fishes tail. Trying to ride a Hippo would be plain silly.
