Maybe I'm just being a bit stupid.. but I'm failing to see the 'g' reference in this picture.

It's not the artist (Boris Valljeo) & the creature looks like a triceratops.....

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but for the life of me I can't see it. :-)

oops.. misspelled Boris' surname there. Apologies to the great man.

ok, ok, I got it now. The Gryf IS the creature. Damn ERB & his strange naming thing.

So yes, I WAS just being stupid apparantly, sheesh..

Heh! No worries. It's a bit confusing. I haven't read the book its from either and figured it was a triceratops for years.

One major difference between triceratops and gryf is the teeth, but Burroughs probably describes others as well.
