The Feng Huang is a legendary or mythical creature; in some ways it is the Chinese version of the Western phoenix. In actual fact, though, there are many differences between them.
First off, the Feng Huang is actually a composite of two birds, the male Feng and the female Huang. Both look the same and modern tradition has combined them into a single bird - the Feng Huang.
Secondly, unlike the Western phoenix which goes through a never-ending cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, the Feng Huang is immortal and never dies.
