I've always favored a mythical animal, the flying pig. Just now learning German, would that be ein Luft-Schwein?

About a year ago, I tried to find a translation of the word "pigasus". A lot of English speakers use this word for a flying or winged pig, but "pigasus", as a word, is still not officially recognized in the English lexicon. At that time, the closest I was able to get to an actual German phrase was "Das geflügelte Schwein" (The winged pig).

Anyway, I think "Das Luftschwein" seems perfectly reasonable.

I imagine das Heißluftschwein using warm gas for lift and the wings - which are (no offence) a little small - for propulsion only. Love your pigture DanielJ.

My favorite animal, at least right now, is hämähäkki, ie. the spider. If we want to be more specific, I'd go for a species of tarantella (tarantula). In languages other than Finnish or English, that'd be, uhh, let's see:

spindeln (Swedish) / la araña (Spanish) / la araneo (Esperanto)

die Spinne (German) / il ragno (Italian) / l'araignée (French)

de spin (Dutch) / y corryn (Welsh) / паук (Russian)

pająk (Polish) / η αράχνη (Greek) / heavdni (Northern Sami)

ämblik (Estonian)

I love both horses and cats. In Norwegian: "katt" and "hest". I love them mostly because they actually love you back and are very sweet. I also love lizards and frogs but I don't what those are in norsk.
