Saber-Toothed Cat Tactics[edit]

Saber-toothed cats use their great upper-body strength to wrestle prey to the ground, where its long canines can deliver a deep stabbing bite to the throat which would generally cut through the jugular vein and/or the trachea and thus kill the prey very quickly.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Saber-toothed cats are social animals, living and hunting in packs (more like wolves then cats) that provided food for old and sick members. Most packs consist of about 20 saber-toothed cats (with half that number being combatants) . The canine teeth and body size of saber-toothed cat are about the same in both male and female cats, and they will often hunt cooperatively. Sometimes barbaric races will capture and train saber-toothed cats to use as shock troops.
