Another hybrid that is quite popular, I present the Griffon.

The griffin, griffon, or gryphon (Ancient Greek: γρύψ, romanized: grýps; Classical Latin: grȳps or grȳpus;[1] Late and Medieval Latin:[2] gryphes, grypho etc.; Old French: griffon) is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, and the head and wings of an eagle with its talons on the front legs.

It has been postulated that the fossilized remains of the protoceratops may have contributed to the belief in the creature. Link below.

Pop culture references include ttrpg’s (once again), movies such as the following.

1) The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian (chronicles of Narnia series)

2) Harry potter series - Prisoner of Azkaband  and the prequil Fantastic beasts and where to find them

3) The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

4) The Spiderwick Chronicles

5) various books and video games.
