You may be wondering what is the actual difference between a legend and a myth? A legend is said to be a story that can be passed on from one generation to another that may be based on true events or something that truly existed. It just so happens that because the story has been passed on so many times that there are different variations that have become available.

The myth, on the other hand, is a type of story that may also be passed on or maybe told to different people but the events that have taken place are already too far fetched to be considered real. This explains why there are some creatures that are considered to be mythical because there is only a small chance that they exist or that they have actually existed.
