Hydras are a breed of reptilian magical beasts that have anywhere from five to twelve heads.
Hydras are especially deadly monsters, since whenever a head is severed, two new ones grow in its place. They are not very intelligent. They typically live alone in swamps and are generally always the most dangerous predator in whatever area they inhabit. A hydra is gray-brown to dark brown, with a light yellow or tan underbelly. The eyes are amber and the teeth are yellow-white. It is about 20 feet long and weighs about 4,000 pounds.
A hydra can be killed either by severing all its heads or by slaying its body. A hydra does not die from losing its heads until all its heads have been cut off and the stumps seared by fire or acid.
There are two other subspecies of hydras; cryohydras and pyrohydras. Cryohydras are purplish in color and can breathe a freezing substance onto their enemies, while pyrohydras are reddish and can breathe fire. They are resistant to ice and fire respectively.
