The tigripad (plural tigripads) was the largest felinoid native to Wunderland. A ferocious predator, a full grown tigripard was capable of killing a human. During the Kzin occupation of Wunderland they became a large problem for farmers in the back country who were left with little in the way of weapons to defend themselves and their livestock. In 2427 C.E. Arthur Guthlac was almost killed by a tigripard while hunting with a .22 caliber rifle. Tigripards were known to hunt alone and in small groups. They were capable of a variety of vocalizations, from snarls to howling.
