* CatsAreMean: Moreau's final experiment, a puma woman, ends up killing him. The other beasts based on big cats tend to be the more savage ones, even compared to the wolf people.

Added DiffLines:

* SavageWolves: There are several wolf people, but they do not seem to be as violent as the feline beasts.
