In the interior lives a monster called the Grand Patagon, with the 'head of a Dogge' and the feet of a hart, but gifted with human understanding and amorous of women... He rides out, fells the Patagon with a single sword thrust, and trusses him up with the leash of his two pet lions. The Patagon dyes the grass red with blood, roars 'so dreadfully that it would have terrified the very stoutest hearte', but recovers and licks his wound clean 'with his huge broade tongue'.
