Legends were often filled with grim events and scary monsters, and the reason for that was to scare people into behaving morally or into believing higher goodness. And no matter the ethnicity or beliefs, people thought that these supernatural creatures really exist and would warn each other to look out for them. Even though now these fantasy animals are accepted as fiction, stories of them still give us chills.

Artist from Portugal, Bruno Santos, brilliantly illustrated some of the lesser known mythical beasts. From a 400-year-old spider who eats handsome men to the mythological creature disguised as a ghost of a whale that brings famine. These terrifying monsters are sure to haunt your dreams.

Check out the illustrations below and tell us in the comments if you've heard about any of these mythical animals and monsters.

Oh, this is a great post, but what made me laugh to no end was the last one, La mano peluda, since as a child, born and raised in Cuba, they used to scare me telling me that "la mano peluda" was going to get me if I misbehaved, and I used to imagine what it would look like, and here is my answer!

LOL!

That is too funny!  My family joked about the Chupacabra!

WOW...

Almost everyone should have heard of all of these creates in some form or another. American Hollywood has actually been creating bastardized representations of each one for many many years now.
