Gargoyle of the Day: Hotel de Ville, Bruxelles

I just saw a photo of this hybrid gargoyle in a gargoyle book I’m reading, and my first thought was that he looks like he belongs in an alien movie. He seemed a bit more extraterrestrial in the first photo I saw, but he’s still so fabulously weird with his wings and fish tail, isn’t he? He is from the Hotel de Ville (Town Hall) in Brussels, Belgium.
