Origin: Greek mythology
Resides In: Mount Eurymanthus
It is a giant, wild boar that roams an area sacred to the goddess, Artemis. It is described as having razor sharp tusks.
Ordered to bring it back alive, Hercules sets out to capture the boar. Along the way, he is entertained by Centaurs. They become intoxicated, forcing Hercules to shoot them down. Only the immortal Centaur Chiron, survives, and he advises the hero to drive the boar into the mountains to subdue it. Once the task is complete, Hercules brings the boar to the king, who is so terrified that he had the boar placed in a jar.
