So Hercules used brass castanets or clappers to startle the birds into flight, allowing him to shoot them down, Hercules seventh task was to kill the Cretan Bull, a Destructive bull, of which Hercules killed by slicing it through the heart, and the cutting its horns off. Hercules eighth task was to Mares of Diomedes Which he captured by chasing it For two years, eighteen hours, sixteen minutes and forty-two seconds.
