The sabre-toothed cat is a monster added in SLASH'EM. Given that they only move at speed 12, they're not normally a threat to a careful player who is unburdened or fast. However, they are significantly tougher than other felines you are likely to encounter, doing twice the damage of a tiger and having twice the hit points. A player who is not sufficiently prepared to engage one in melee may end up facing a YASD before he knows what is going on.

Origin

Sabre-toothed cats are prehistoric felines with huge canine teeth. Some species of sabre-toothed cats are erroneously called "sabre-toothed tigers".
