153. December 24, 2021 - There do seem to be references to a "ἱππότιγρις" (horse-tiger) from Greek and Roman sources. It also seems that the species described would NOT be synonymous with the African species with which we're most familiar. Instead, it would probably be a now-extinct species from the Iberian peninsula. In order to honor this distinction, I had to make a few changes to the hippotigris I illustrated here. For one, I combined multiple references for a unique stripe pattern I'm sure you noticed. I also made him 30% more smug than contemporary zebra species.
