The mermahuataur is a mythological creature created by graphic designer Jim Unwin and writer Dylan Carline.

It first appeared in their Euler diagram of mythical creatures that achieved significant popularity as an internet meme and in 2009 appeared in print in London's Metro newspaper.

The mermahuataur, based on the combinations given in the mythical creature diagram, is farcically described as being 'half human, half bull, half narwhal'.

Since the publishing of the Euler diagram, the Mermahuataur has been imagined and drawn by various artists and designers. Notably, it is now part of the web-site for the PlayStation 3 game, LittleBigPlanet. It shows a mermahuataur drawn by Rex Crowle on its HTTP 404 Error page.
