I may not remember Taniwha this time, but it'll now be rattling around in the back of my head in the future. Eventually I'll remember it, just like I eventually picked up abattoir for slaughterhouse.
If you needed a Q "qilin" would have been a better choice- the dragon/ox/deer hybrid of Chinese mythology.
"No, I didn't mix up centaur and satyr; a centaur in Greek mythology is half-man, half-horse. The satyr in traditional Greek mythology has horse-like features, which is why I said "part horse/man". Early depictions include a horse's tail and ears, among other things. The Romans had fauns, very similar creatures, but with goat-like features. There's a good article about satyrs on wikipedia which describes how confusion between the two became prevalent, to the point of satyrs being commonly referred to as having goat-like features. It's a hot mess, really."
