Strictly speaking, this is not a Venn diagram, which represents _all_ possible intersections available within a set, but an Euler diagram.
By any name, though, the diagram is great.

oh yea, you may know her children better. Ladon, Hydra, Chimaera , Orthus, Cerberus, Sphinx, and the Nemean Lion were all her children from Typhon.

Echidna is perhaps best known as being the mother of many monsters, particularily with her union with Typhon. Her name means she-viper. Echidna was killed in her sleep by the hundred-eyed creature Argus.
She was depicted as having the head of a beautiful nymph, but the body of a serpent. The lives of her and her children were only spared so that they could be sport for future heroes.

Also MANTICORE NEEDS SCORPION TOO. >:|
