Planther from Martian Dreams manual
Only appearance: Martian Dreams

The Planther of Mars acts like an Earth lion, and is at least as dangerous as one. It is quite fast, and has very sharp fangs that can shred its foes to pieces in no time. It's best to dispose of them as do the hunters on the plains of Africa: by taking them down from afar with projectile weapons, before they come too close.

Lore[edit]

Fast, agile and deadly, the planther is at the top of the plantimal food chain. Though it rarely attacks the larger herbivores, a hungry specimen of the breed can chase down a sextelleger (with some difficulty...). Planthers tend to be loners, sticking to the mountainous regions they love, but they move into the plains areas and travel in small prides during pollination season.
