lieutenant unicorn

woah really??? I always thought they were horses. Were they their own species ? ? ?

u betcha!! unicorns started showing up in medieval illustrations as small, often deer or goat-like critters

note the cloven hooves, beard, tail (tho they’re more commonly lion-esque) 

(there’s that lion tail)

but if one were to split hairs, technically ANYTHING with a single horn is a unicorn (which results in some very creative creatures in my experience), so if u like horseicorns then that’s ur prerogative!
