Chimeras are dangerous creatures in the land of Xanth. They are considered a crossbreed. They have three heads: a lion's head, a goat's head, and a snake's head. The lion's head is located where the head would normally be. The goat's head was positioned in the middle of the chimera's back. The snake's head is located at the end of the chimera's tail. Chimera's generally hate all things human.
