The Miraj or Al-Miraj is a rabbit-like creature from Arabian mythology, said to live on an unnamed island in the Indian Ocean. This oversized jaundiced colored hare is said to have a large, spiraling black horn atop its head and a voraciously carnivorous appetite. It is said that when ever the Miraj was seen by other creatures they would flee for there lives, however none could escape the blazing speed of the Miraj which was fast enough to keep up with the likes of an antelope.
On top of its speed the Miraj was said to be able to take down prey much larger than itself such as cattle and pigs. It is a well known fact among sailors in the area that the Miraj would kill and eat a human if given the chance, however this creature is often dismissed flat out as myth by modern researchers.
Maybe, asian version of well-known Jackalope.
