ZhuJian/諸犍

ZhuJian/諸犍 - Chinese Mythtical Beasst

In the mountains, there is a beast Zhujian(諸犍) that resembles a leopard. It has a long tail, a human head, cow ears, and only one eye. It often roars loudly. When it walks, it holds its tail in its mouth. When it sleeps, it curls its tail up.

《山海經 北山一經》

又北百八十裏,曰單張之山,其上無草木。有獸焉,其狀如豹而長尾,人首而牛耳,一目,名曰諸犍,善咤,行則銜其尾,居則蟠其尾。
