Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Zairtails are small natural reptilian animals. They are commonly found in tropical environments, and while only the largest of them grow to the size of your everyday house cat, they can be dangerous predators. There are several different species of zairtail, but they co-mingle and work well with each other especially when attacking prey. The creatures are generally quite feral. However there are some who have been brave enough to train the beasts. In addition to their innate attacks, zairtails have excellent senses of smell.
