  1. I can only say one thing: I have soooo much to learn. I’ll show my ignorance by saying… gryphon (#2)? Pegasus (#13)? Mermaids (#14)? Aaaand, that’s that? Some ring a bell, but I can’t quite tell, especially in English hahaha.

    Also I can’t think of what #16 are, but they’ll be visiting me in my nightmares tonight, so thank you for that. XD

    Looking forward to the solution to this quiz hehe! Bet everyone will do better than me, but cheers anyway!
