Bio:

A Peng, roc, or rukh (from the Arabic and Persian رخ rokh possibly abbreviated from of Persian simurgh) is an enormous legendary bird of prey. The roc had its origins in the fight between the Indian solar bird Garuda and the chthonic serpent Nāga. The mytheme of Garuda carrying off an elephant that was battling a tortoise appears in two Sanskrit epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The roc appears in Arabic geographies and natural history, popularized in Arabian fairy tales and sailors’ folklore. Ibn Battuta tells of a mountain hovering in air over the China Seas, which was the roc.
