No god killed Medusa, the hero Perseus killed Medusa with the guidance of Athena and Hermes. Pereseus did not have snakes for hair either, Medusa did. It was her punishment for laying with Poseidon in the Temple of Athena.

The hero Perseus did. He was, however, not a god.

Perseus from Greek mythology. He killed Medusa, the snake-haired lady who had two sisters. One look from her would turn you to solid stone.

Medusa was not a Greek goddess. She did appear in their mythology, however, as the terrifying snake-haired Gorgon whose gaze turned you to stone. Her head's powers were eventually used as a weapon by the hero Perseus.

No, for Pegasus and Khrysaor spring from her blood when Perseus killed Medusa.

Apollo the Greek god does not have a favorite snake, he killed the serpent Python.

Poseidon was in Athena's temple with Medusa. At that time, Medusa was beautiful. Athena caught them and got furious. Then she turned Medusa ugly with snake hair.

Medusa, can use her power to turn you into stone. All it take is by looking in her eye. She has snake as her hair and she is villain.

She is a Gorgon, Gorgons are women that are hediousley revolting and ugly from being cursed, Like Medusa, she used to be a beautiful woman but then she got cursed by a goddess and transformed into an ugly, evil snake-haired woman.

medusa is a god the strongest god ever. When she walked anyone she hated died.Well kind of..... more like a Greek goddess.

She was supposed to be a snake monster with a human head so it was green.Untold in Greek myth.

Medusa wasn't a god. But was known/worshiped/seen as a serpent/snake godess/Priestess. She was turned from her original form into a snake-like person by Athena while she was with Poseidon.Medusa is not a god. In ancient Greek Mythology, Medusa was a monster who was so hideous that gazing upon her turned onlookers to stone.She was slain by the hero Perseus.

No. In one mythos, Medusa is the offspring (with her sisters) of the primaeval Greek sea gods, Phorcys and Ceto. In another, Medusa, a beautiful priestess of Athena, lay with (or was raped by depending on version and translation) Poseidon and was cursed by Athena.

first thing, Medusa is not a goddess of Greek She dated with Poseidon and went to Athena's temple and Athena got mad and turned her into gorgon or something and she can turn people into stones by eye you looking at her and she has 2 sisters and she has snake hair

Yes. she is half human and half snake..

no she did not like her snake head

The word here may be Medusa, a snake-tressed gorgon of Greek mythology. The name medusa is also applied to the free-swimming stage of marine cnidarians (jellyfish, stinging nettles).

Medusa was cursed and, so, she probably got used to them after awhile.

Medusa looks like a snake with a woman body

Medusa is a Greek Mythology myth. Her eyes can turn people to stone forever. She has snake hair, 2 sisters, and she used to have friends.

No; they turned to stone, not snakes. Medusa had snakes for hair.

Medusa was born Medusa. However, she assumed her better-known Gorgon form with snake hair when she was caught with Poseidon in Athena's temple. IDK

There were several figures from Greek mythology cursed with scary appearances, one of which was Medusa, who gained snake-hair and turned into a monster after laying with Poseidon in Athena's temple.
