NAME ORIGIN
    The Hydra was a multi-headed snake from Greek mythology that inhabited the lake of Lerna in Argolid. One of the monstrous offspring of Typhon and Echidna, it was the guardian of the entrance to the underwold found beneath the lake. When one of the creature's heads was cut off, two more would grow back in its place. The great hero Hercules killed the Hydra as one of his Twelve Labors by burning the stumps of the decapitated Hydra's heads so that they could not grow back. The word comes from the Greek Hudra, meaning "water serpent".
