Hercules was then sent to capture the Cretan Bull by Eurystheus as his seventh task. Hercules sailed to Crete, whereupon the King Minos gave Hercules permission to take the bull away. (M: I remember these characters! :D) Grabbing the bull by the horns, Hercules wrestled the bull to the ground and tied the bull up so it could not escape.
Next, Hercules was than sent to steal the man-eating Mares of Diomedes. Upon arrival Hercules, knowing how King Diomedes would feed strangers to his horses, wrestled with him, overpowered him, and fed him to his own horses- (M: Skip to the next one!)
His ninth task was to retrieve the belt of Hippolyta, a gift to the queen of the Amazons from the war god Ares. Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, impressed with Hercules and his exploits, agreed to give him the belt and would have done so had Hera not disguised herself and walked among the Amazons sowing seeds of distrust. The Amazon women attacked, and Hercules beleived Hippolyta had betrayed him, so he killed her and escaped with the belt.
Next, he was ordered to obtain the Cattle of Geryon as his tenth labor. Geryon was a monster with three chests and one pair of legs. He pursued Hercules at the River Anthemus but fell victim to an arrow that had been dipped in the venomous blood of the Hydra. Despite Hera's attempts to disperse the cattle with gadflies, Hercules was able to successfully round them up and bring them back to King Eurystheus.
Hercules next labor was to steal the Golden Apples from the Garden of the Hesperides. This tee was guarded by Ladon, a dragon-like creature with one hundred heads. Atlas was trapped nearby, holding the heavens above him. Hercules tricked Atlas into retrieving some of the golden apples for him, by offering to hold up the heavens for a little while. Atlas did not want to take the heavens back, but Hercules tricked him into holding it again so that he could fix his cloak.
Capturing Cerberus, Hades' dog itself, alive, without using weapons, was the final labor assigned to Hercules. With Hades' permission, Hercules was able to harmlessly overpower Cerberus and proceeded to sling the beast over his back, dragging it out of the underworld.
