The Centaur the Greek Creature
What it is
Centaurs are half men, half horse. The Kentauros was depicted with the upper body of a man, from head to loins, set upon the body of a horse. Sometimes it had the facial feature of a man, at other times it was portrayed with the snub nose and pointed ears of a rustic.
Where they lived
Centaurs are savages which inhabited the mountains and forests of Magnesia. They were a primitive race who made their homes in mountain caves, hunted wild animals for food and armed themselves with rocks and tree branches. The Centaurs were spawned by the cloud nymph.
