Saber-tooth cats are carnivores found in many of the mountainous or snow bound lands of Middle-earth. The most obvious feature are the fang like teeth projecting below their jaws, and they come in many colors and patterns. They are not actually cats, being a related family. However in common usage some cats such as leopards and lions are considered to be saber-tooth cats.
Sabre-tooth cats are very aggressive, are often pets to other ancient bipeds such as giants and snow-beasts, and they do not seem to be aligned with the rising evil unless they are allied to something that is.
