Did you know?

How much do you know about the unicorn?

This legendary beast is often depicted as a white horse with a single, spiraled horn protruding from its forehead. Authors and artists have described the creature in mythological stories and folklore. Ancient Greeks, the Indus Valley civilization, European Renaissance, and even the Bible have all discussed the unicorn.

Aside from its prominent appearance, this animal is also known for its power. Not only is it a symbol of purity and good, but the horn was supposedly magical. The wild creature could heal sick people by making poisonous water potable. Do you believe it? There are no longer any unicorns around to find out if they ever existed at all.

Nevertheless, there are several other animals still alive that resemble the unicorn in different ways. For example, it clearly looks like a horse, but more so a single-horned goat. Oryx and eland are animals with dual longhorns, but the narwhal is perhaps the most similar. Aside from being a marine animal, a narwhal has a single, spiral horn coming out its head. Maybe the unicorn was left behind when Noah made his ark unlike his relatives, but we may never truly know.
