The Minotaur is found in Greek mythology and had the body of a man, and the head of a furious bull.
The Minotaur was put in a huge maze or labyrinth made by King Minos. The Minotaur was a deadly beast, who craved fresh meat and bones to chomp. The labyrinth was huge, and the Minotaur could never find it's way out through the zigzagging hallways.
Theseus killed the Minotaur, by stabbing it. Aaaaah!
