A horde is a large animal with furry horns, and a large muscle replacing the brain. This muscle controls all the movements throughout the serpentine lion's body.
Hordes travel mainly in large groups, eating grass, butterflies, and dandelions. Occasionally they eat squirrels, rabbits and elephants.
Their natural predators are sphinx and jackalope, which share the desert-based mud pools in which they live, five days out of twenty. The other days the read "lardy boys" books and smoke methane gas.
If you meet a horde, remember to smile and draw your gun slowly. Aim for the hordes foot, as his heart is there, but make sure to hit all four.
If you fail to kill the horde, it will screem, brining the curse of the banshee upon you.
