The Garuda is a figure in Hindu mythology. It is a golden-bodied bird with an eagle's beak, an eagle's wings and the body of a human. The Garuda is so big that it can block out the sun's light. The Garuda is also called the "Bird of Life". The mythological figure Vishnu rides on the Garuda. The Garuda used to eat a snake every day, until a Buddhist prince showed him why he shouldn't. Then he brought all the snakes he'd eaten back to life.
