- Unicorns (common type)
A Tibetan Unicorn with a fierce disposition. The Kere is usually seen as a creature that has the head of a horse, the body of a stag and the tail of a lion with one horn protruding from the middle of its forehead. There can only be one Unicorn at any given time. Its horn is known as Alicorn and can be straight or twisted. When Westerners went to Tibet in the early 20th century they failed to find any Unicorns and thus stopped believing in the Tibetan myth.
Another Tibetan Unicorn the the Serou.
