The snow lion (S."Lossraw") was a rare animal native to the high vales of the Ered Mithrin. Smaller and more compact than a mountain lion, the snow lion remained white throughout the year, and its eyes were a beautiful shade of azure. It favored small game, although it would occasionally prey upon mountain goats and deer. Snow lions mated for life, and both parents raised the single cub born each year. Occasionally, a bold Beiabarnae would ascend the Ered Mithrin to befriend a snow lion. Those who succeeded in such a quest had won a faithful ally for life.
