The Garudas are also a class of gods (or supernatural being) in Buddhism and Hinduism. He is also the King of birds and is a descendant of Kasyapa and Winata, one of the daughters of Daksa.
He is also the archenemy of snakes, this trait was inherited from his mother, who ever has had a quarrel with another concubine and her superior, named Kadru, the mother of all snakes, who represents the primeval serpent.
