Herongriff is not your average hippogriff/griffon. This creature is heron instead of eagle, and has cloven hooves in place of horse hooves.

Herongriff is a one of a kind creation. The face and claws are sculpted in polymer clay, while the rest of the body is soft and constructed over a flexible wire armature. Herongriff is built from scratch and hand painted (yes, even the eyes are painted clay, not glass!) The synthetic fur is hand sewn to the body and remains soft.
