Hex Crawl 23 #231: Scarp Cats

Two hexes northwest, seven north of Alakran.

Mittellus draws from all earthly biomes, so within a day's walk of "Old World" leopards 25 miles to the north (probably outside the scope of this hexcrawl), the Scarp's extended convolutions give refuge to a population of five roving "New World" mountain lions. A useful comparison can be found here.

Two of these are pumapards,  the product of interfertility with said leopards -- they are short-legged, smaller than the others, despite the leopard's greater strength, and have patches of spots on their coat. A few animal collectors in Eryptos may be interested in captured specimens of these rare beasts.
