This fantastical guardian creature sits on top of the north tower of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Some say it's a ghoul and others a vampire. Whatever it is, it looks a bit cheeky with its tongue poking out!
Le Stryge is one of the stone carvings that replaced Notre Dame's original medieval gargoyles in the mid 1800s, which were designed to spout water away from the building and had broken down over time. A huge fire in the cathedral in 2019 damaged Le Stryge.
