One of the mythical animals from the old Chinese bestiaries. The Poaxiao was a mountain goat that had the face of a human. Its eyes were located under its armpits. Instead of hooves it had human hands and it had the sharp teeth of a tiger. It was a fierce predacious creature that hunted and devoured people.
