I am writing about a fantastical creature and was unsure of how to describe it grammatically. It is combination of two different animals and was wondering if I could use "and" repeatedly in this way:

"The creature had the body of a turtle and the head and legs of a lion."

There is no problem with the sentence but you can use my word :

 The creature had the body of a turtle with the head and legs of a lion.

    Please add an explanation why your sentence is better, which I agree it is. – Helmar Aug 19 '16 at 7:02
