These little ones are as active as any other hatchlings, but their games are not in fun. Though voro manticore hatchlings certainly find enjoyment in their activities, they are busy learning. They practice learning how to stalk silently, and pounce on anything moves. It is only a matter of weeks until they can survive without their parents, and find their own meals. As soon as they are self sufficient, manticore hatchlings strike out on their own, leaving to mark out their own territories.

Voro manticores are most interesting beasts. Though they have manes like those of lions, they also have strange webbed wings more similar to those of a bat. These fearsome companions are able to move quickly on land, scaling large trees with ease. They are also able to sustain flight for short periods of time, soaring through the air and often landing on unsuspecting prey. And even more interestingly, voro manticores are able to breathe underwater for several hours, and often live near rivers. Especially on hot days, these felines will sink to the bottom of a river or pond, napping there until an animal comes in search of a drink. Then the manticore lunges towards their desired meal, usually clawing at them. Their bright blue claws hold a deadly poison that paralyzes their victims, allowing them to devour their meal without further effort. Voro manticores have a rather terrifying way of consuming food - they can eat anything in one single bite, regardless of its size. Their jaws seem to grow impossible wide for a split second, and as soon as one blinks, the lifeless animal is gone, presumably into the manticore’s gaping maw. Luckily for humans, voro manticores tend to live in uninhabited areas, and pose little threat to humans not seeking them. Manticores dislike any cold weather, and typically live in the depths of jungles, or on exotic southern islands.
