Manticore were released July 2009 with art by BettyXme. Manticore eggs are a component of the Foreign Scroll quest. While only male lions have manes, both male and female manticore have manes.
A tail and webbed wing can be seen poking out of this egg.
Your feline hatchling coils its hind legs, ready to execute a powerful leap and attack a wavering blade of grass. Mid pounce, dark wings open and hold the small cub in the air, wind keeping it lifted in a short flight. Victorious with the tuft of grass between its sharp teeth, the baby lion makes its way over. Green eyes stare back at you as it pads up to you with its prize, purring softly. Sweet as any kitten, this baby is soft and playful, but sharp teeth can pierce skin, and its claws seem to grow with each passing day. Soon your tiny hatchling will become fully grown.
Manticores possess the bodies of huge lions, with bat-like wings that aid their flight. Adding to their already remarkable prowess as hunters, these wings allow manticores to chase prey among the top of trees as well as along the forest floor. Swift and heavily muscled, most of their time is spent on the ground, where they run with wings tightly pressed to their backs, traveling just as fast as they do in flight. Equally content to travel during the day and night, these felines protect their masters intensely, although they don't mind the occasional nap by your bed.
