March’s Feature Creature

Originally published on March 1, 2023.

This month’s feature creature hails from Germany: the Elwetritsche. That’s ‘El-vuh-tritch’ for those who have never taken a German language course. This chicken-like creature with antlers was thought to originate from crossbreeding small fowl (e.g., chickens, quails, ducks, geese) with mythical wood creatures (e.g., goblins, elves). It was targeted for the royal hunt by a Bavarian King. Unfortunately, the beast was never found, so they served the King several quails and told him the hunt was successful.

Are you shy and curious? Perhaps your inner beast is the Elwetritsche. Have you taken the Cryptid quiz to help you discover your inner beast? WHAT?! Go here and do the quiz. Don’t forget to let us know what beast lies within in the comments below.
