Chimeras are composites, hybrids with some mixture of human, non-human animal, and plant components. Most variegated plants are classified as genetic chimeras because they possess more than one genotype. Tissues taken from non-human animals and put into human bodies are known as grafted chimeras. There are also the most famous chimeras, fire-breathing female monsters with parts from lion, goat, and serpent bodies.
