A unicorn is a mythical creature that looks like a horse with a horn on its head. I don’t know why they are called unicorns. If they only have one horn, they should be called unihorns. That makes a lot more sense. Unicorns are a symbol of purity, grace, and magic. The horn is said to have healing powers and drinking the unicorn’s blood can make you immortal (at least according to the Harry Potter universe). Giants supposedly used unicorn horns as toothpicks. In the ancient world they believed unicorns were real and were probably based on sightings of unfamiliar animals and bad descriptions from unreliable eyewitnesses. In the middle ages they believed that unicorns could only be captured by virgins, so you should be insulted if someone calls you a unicorn-catcher.
