Seriously though, where do you draw the line between what is mythology and what is reality?
Troy for example. So yeah, maybe, you never can be to sure.
The idea of a chimera comes straight out of Greek mythology, but so far scientists have kept human-animal hybrids on the cellular level. According to some, even more modest experiments involving animal embryos and human stem cells violate human dignity and blur the line between species. But scientists have received support (particularly in the UK) from both the government and the public, after explaining the process as well as their (so far benign) research goals. Is interspecies research the next frontier in understanding humanity and curing disease, or a slippery slope, rife with ethical dilemmas, toward creating new species?
18 And their judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.
The book of Jasher has also told us that mankind has before created hybrids. From Jasher 4

We have no way of proving or knowing that there are no hybrids, firstly if I was one I for sure wouldn't be wandering around saying hey check out my awesome tail or whatever.
But basing this on pure speculation I fathom nothing is impossible, so given nothing is impossible that boils down to however improbable it is still possible. Let's not discount this just yet.
