Magical Beasts are animals with high intelligences, usually due to the intervention of magic. These creatures may have supernatural abilities, or look bizarre in appearance. Common magical beasts include basilisks, displacer beasts, gorgons, griffons, hippogriffs, owlbears, sphinxes, or even the dreaded tarrasque.
