  1. It puzzles me that we never see depictions of female Centaurs, and yet we have female horses? Were the female horses bred from some other originating specie than Centaurs?

  2. Along with his other scientific nature series, Walt Disney compiled all of the existing film of centaurs (male and female) in the wilds of Acadia for a segment of his brilliant 1940 nature film: Fantasia. It is known to be even more accurate than his pieces on lemmings.
