    I think antlion (like the bug) would have been a much more fitting name for the mermeclion lol. Also, I wonder why somebody would name a prominent part of our brain after something that was half horse and half dolphin (assuming that’s what it was named after). If it wasn’t named after that, you’d think there would have been a better word to use than one such as that. Strange…

    Well how about that. I’m from Poland, I’m interested in legends and I’ve heard about the Bishop Fish yet the “polish” side of the story story is new to me. But that’s good. It’s always good to learn something new.
    Pretty obscure bestiary. I’d be nice if someone include them into some fantasy realm (might as well be an RPG).

    No, antlions are real, but they aren’t an ant with a lion’s head. The term refers to the larval form of Myrmeleontidae, AKA the “doodlebug”. They dig holes in the sand and wait for ants (or whatever else) to fall in. They have been called a “lion among ants”, hence antlion. The adult form is kind of like a damsel fly. Science, people.
