Manticores are creatures from the Indies. They have the the body of a lion, the tail (with a stinger) of a scorpion, and the head of a man. Manticores have blood-red (or sometimes flaming blue) eyes and three rows of teeth. Their voices sound like very shrill flutes, and they are capable of basic human speech. Manticores are capable of jumping very great distances and use this to feed their ravenous hunger with a diet of human flesh.
