Your feline hatchling coils its hind legs, ready to execute a powerful leap and attack a wavering blade of grass. Mid pounce, dark wings open and hold the small cub in the air, wind keeping it lifted in a short flight. Victorious with the tuft of grass between its sharp teeth, the baby lion makes its way over. Green eyes stare back at you as it pads up to you with its prize, purring softly. Sweet as any kitten, this baby is soft and playful, but sharp teeth can pierce skin, and its claws seem to grow with each passing day. Soon your tiny hatchling will become fully grown.
Traveling deep in the jungle, you catch a glimpse of an unnaturally large lion. Hiding behind a screen of vines, you watch as this huge feline pads on soft feet to a river for a drink. You stare with amazement as giant, bat-like wings extend from its back and its powerful form bends down to reach the water. Dark and webbed, these bestial wings look capable of carrying the lion in flight, and are quite unlike anything you've seen on a creature from The Keep. How such an animal came to exist, you don't know, but you can't miss the chance to follow this animal in the hope of finding a rare egg to steal away.
