I love the words describing the positions of heraldic creatures!
Dexter the right side of the shield... if you are facing the shield,
dexter is on your left.
Rampant A rearing creature, in profile facing dexter, its right limbs raised higher than the left
Passant walking creature, its right fore raised.
Statant creature standing.
Couchant creature lying down with head raised.
Dormant creature sleeping.
Now here is something else delightful!
An Enfield is a creature with the head of a fox, the body of a greyhound, talons of an eagle and the back end of a wolf!
I've decided to adopt an Enfield as my new companion animal. :) I shall call him squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my squishy.
The Enfield Beast Links at the Enfield Preservation Society. (No, they are not preserving the creature. Enfield is a place in England!)
Heraldic Beasts at West Kingdom College of Heralds... This page is
