Savage Earth: Cold Moon
Panthera leo spelaea also known as the European or Eurasian cave lion is large feline with a maximum head and body length of 2.40 meters, which is about half a meter longer than African lions. Despite the name this Lion does not make its home in caves, preferring conifer forests and grasslands although they are known as far north as Canada and Russia.
Incredibly powerful predators the cave lion does not gather in packs, thankfully, although occaisionally mated pairs or small groups of bachelors will live and hunt together. However even a single member of the species is more than a match for an individual armed or otherwise.
