Al-Miraj


The Al-Miraj is from Islamic poetry. It's said to be a yellow rabbit with a long black spiraling horn on it's forehead. From a distance it looks peaceful, but if you walk up to it, it will attack. It can kill with just a few stabs of it's horn, and can even eat creatures much lager than itself. The only thing that can calm an Al-Miraj down enough to kill it is a witch.

I remember I saw this, along with a Gulon (spotted cat), in a donald duck story. It was Don Rosa, so it obviously was a real thing (it's the one Donald tries to embarrass his nephews by dressing animals up as something they can't identify). I always thought the names were kinda backwards. Gul means yellow in norwegian, and the cat was blue and pink, and Miraj... I was a kid, I thought it sounded cat-ish

Ive seen these dipicted in the pathfinder roleplaying game, I thought it was a weird spooff of the unicorn. Nice to know there is some folklore behind it. ^^

There's this cute (and completely awesome) animation with this creature in. I didn't even know it was an actual myth/folklore, just thought it was the artist creation *cue 'the more you know' theme* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gxrI5CPYIM
