Pegasus or Pegasi are part of the Equine family, and are closely related to both horses and Unicorns. The main difference between a horse and a pegasus, is that the pegasus has a pair of wings giving it the ability to fly.
Pegasi got their name from the Greek myth Pegasus, a white winged horse whose parentage had been of Medusa, one of the three Gorgons and Poseidon, the greek god of the sea. When Perseus beheaded Medusa, Pegasus was freed from his mothers pregnant body. After many adventures he eventually flew up into the heavens to become a constellation. This constellation makes up one of our 88 modern constellations and is often viewed in an upside down postion, giving it the appearence of emerging from the ocean.

Today Pegasi are more closely associated with the fantasy genre and are one of the more popular and widely known mythical creatures. They can often be found in both fantasy fiction and art.
