q   a quadrupedThe woodlands and other regions are inhabited by multitudes
of four-legged creatures which cannot be simply classified.
They might not have fiery breath or deadly stings, but
adventurers have nevertheless met their end numerous times
due to the claws, hooves, or bites of such animals.

The mumak... the Mumak of Harad was indeed a beast of vast bulk, and
the like of him does not walk now in Middle-Earth; his kin
that live still in latter days are but memories of his girth
and majesty. On he came, ... his great legs like trees,
enormous sail-like ears spread out, long snout upraised like
a huge serpent about to strike, his small red eyes raging.
His upturned hornlike tusks ... dripped with blood.

bites! You hear the howling of the CwnAnnwnA pack of snow-white, red-eared spectral hounds which
sometimes took part in the kidnappings and raids the
inhabitants of the underworld sometimes make on this world
(the Wild Hunt). They are associated in Wales with the sounds
of migrating wild geese, and are said to be leading the souls
of the damned to hell. The phantom chase is usually heard or
seen in midwinter and is accompanied by a howling wind.

I thought mumaks wereIn 1573, the Parliament of Dole published a decree, permitting
the inhabitants of the Franche-Comte to pursue and kill a
were-wolf or loup-garou, which infested that province,
"notwithstanding the existing laws concerning the chase."
The people were empowered to "assemble with javelins,
halberds, pikes, arquebuses and clubs, to hunt and pursue the
said were-wolf in all places where they could find it, and to
take, burn, and kill it, without incurring any fine or other
penalty." The hunt seems to have been successful, if we may
judge from the fact that the same tribunal in the following
year condemned to be burned a man named Giles Garnier, who
ran on all fours in the forest and fields and devoured little
children, "even on Friday." The poor lycanthrope, it appears,
had as slight respect for ecclesiastical feasts as the French
pig, which was not restrained by any feeling of piety from
eating infants on a fast day.

Mumakil and Elephants would be more like mastiff and rottweiler than chimp and apeThe most highly evolved of all the primates, as shown by
all their anatomical characters and particularly the
development of the brain. Both arboreal and terrestrial,
the apes have the forelimbs much better developed than
the hind limbs. Tail entirely absent. Growth is slow
and sexual maturity reached at quite an advanced age.
[ A Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Africa by Dorst ]

Aldo the gorilla had a plan. It was a good plan. It was
right. He knew it. He smacked his lips in anticipation as
he thought of it. Yes. Apes should be strong. Apes should
be masters. Apes should be proud. Apes should make the
Earth shake when they walked. Apes should _rule_ the Earth.

Hmm. Maybe so.. All I know is that they taste good with lichenThe chamber was of unhewn rock, round, as near as might
be, eighteen or twenty feet across, and gay with rich
variety of fern and moss and lichen. The fern was in
its winter still, or coiling for the spring-tide; but
moss was in abundant life, some feathering, and some
gobleted, and some with fringe of red to it.

from the recurrent disorder known as thirst, for which it
is a medicine. Upon nothing has so great and diligent

anyway? A centaurOf all the monsters put together by the Greek imagination
the Centaurs (Kentauroi) constituted a class in themselves.
Despite a strong streak of sensuality, in their make-up,
their normal behaviour was moral, and they took a kindly
thought of man's welfare. The attempted outrage of Nessos on
Deianeira, and that of the whole tribe of Centaurs on the
Lapith women, are more than offset by the hospitality of
Pholos and by the wisdom of Cheiron, physician, prophet,
lyrist, and the instructor of Achilles. Further, the
Centaurs were peculiar in that their nature, which united the
body of a horse with the trunk and head of a man, involved
an unthinkable duplication of vital organs and important
members. So grotesque a combination seems almost un-Greek.
These strange creatures were said to live in the caves and
clefts of the mountains, myths associating them especially
with the hills of Thessaly and the range of Erymanthos.

! Leocratta! PantherAnd lo! almost where the ascent began,
A panther light and swift exceedingly,
Which with a spotted skin was covered o'er!

And never moved she from before my face,
Nay, rather did impede so much my way,
That many times I to return had turned.

! SoldierThe soldiers of Yendor are well-trained in the art of war,
many trained by the Wizard himself. Some say the soldiers
are explorers who were unfortunate enough to be captured,
and put under the Wizard's spell. Those who have survived
encounters with soldiers say they travel together in platoons,
and are fierce fighters. Because of the load of their combat
gear, however, one can usually run away from them, and doing
so is considered a wise thing.

exist, and they are known and feared for their relentless
persecution of their victims.
