In Egyptian mythology the Sta was described has having the head and neck of the extremely poisonous serpent known as an asp and a body which resembled that of a large cat like creature, though other quadrupeds have been substituted in place of a feline form. Like many other hybrid creatures in Egyptian mythology the Sta was looked upon as a form of god.
One theory which has been suggested is that this creature may be based upon ancient descriptions of a large monitor like lizard. Some investigators have gone as far as suggesting that it may have been a now extinct species of long legged reptile, which may have evolved a more feline like form in order to better compete with other predators of the Nile River Basin. A small hand full of researchers have even suggested that the Sta may have been a small Sauropod, a form of four legged dinosaur.
To date no evidence has been discovered to suggest that the Sta is or ever was an actual animal.
No documented sightings of the Sta could be found at this time.
