The Gryphon has the body of a puma, the wings of a bat and a hydra-headed tongue composed of snakes.
In the early script by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, the Gryphon first arrived in Utah, United States in a meteorite, and begins to consume animals, sending Probe Bats to gather the genetic material from many different Earth animals to construct a new body for itself. Once it built its body, it went to New York to battle Godzilla, where it was destroyed.
A popular misconception is that Toho's agreement with TriStar forbade them from creating any monsters of their own. Toho apparently told TriStar that if "their" Godzilla was to battle another creature, it had to be a Toho creation. The two monsters Toho offered, Mothra and King Ghidorah, were too expensive, making TriStar decline. However, this isn't true, as the real reason that the film was scrapped was that the film's budget would have been too expensive for TriStar, making Jan De Bont, the would-have-been director of the film, leave, forcing TriStar bring in Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin along with the rest of the crew of Independence Day, who discarded most of the original script by Rossio and Elliot.
