This is a fabulous meme that I discovered a few weeks ago at Uncorked Thoughts. Basically, Leah (the host) picks a topic each week that has to do with Harry Potter in some way. I have loved reading her (and others) posts so I decided to try it for myself. If you are a huge HP fan, I highly recommend participating!
FAVORITE CREATURE OF THE SERIES
Here's a bit more about Hippogriffs from Harry Potter Wikia:
A Hippogriff is a magical creature that has the front legs, wings, and head of a giant eagle and the body, hind legs and tail of a horse. It is very similar to another mythical creature, the Griffin, with the horse rear replacing the lion rear. Hippogriffs have cruel, steel-coloured beaks and large, brilliantly orange eyes. The talons on their front legs are half a foot long and appear deadly. The breeding of fancy Hippogriffs is an established wizarding career, with known breeders including Newton Scamander's mother. Images of said fancy Hippogriffs are sometimes put onto calendars.
