袋狮是一种强大的大型有袋类动物，主要在树林中捕猎。它的长爪和半相对的脚趾使它成为熟练的攀爬者。 在捕猎时，袋狮会利用这种特性。它会爬上树木等待并猛扑过去伏击路过的动物。当这么大的生物跳到目标的身上，目标就会被击晕并且没多少生存机会。 袋狮最值得注意的战斗能力是它强大的下颚。当它撕咬猎物时，它会用钢铁般的抓力锁住自己的下颚并控制住大多数小型生物。然后袋狮会继续用它锋利的爪子猛烈攻击猎物。如果它需要逃离渣都，袋狮会用它充满肌肉的后腿跳回到树林中的安全地带。
Common name: Thylacoleo
Species: Thylacoleo furtimorsus
Time: Early-Late Pleistocene
Thylacoleo furtimorsus is a large, powerful marsupial that can often be found hunting around trees among the Island's redwoods. Its long claws and semi-opposable digits make it an apt climber, a quality that Thylacoleo uses to its advantage while hunting. It clambers up large trees and waits to ambush passing prey by pouncing upon them. When something that large jumps onto a target, the victim becomes stunned and doesn't stand much of a chance. Thylacoleo's most notable fighting quality is its powerful jaws. Once it bites its prey, it locks its jaw in an iron grip that can hold most smaller creatures in place. Thylacoleo then goes on to savage its prey with its sharp claws. If it needs to escape from a fight, Thylacoleo uses its muscular hind legs to jump back to safety among the trees.
Thylacoleo is a moderately strong mount, and its ability to climb trees and jump long distances makes it useful for traversal. As such, developing tribes often tame it. Small raiding parties particularly favor Thylacoleo, as it is well suited to ambushes and unfair fights!
