After mass extinction of large herbivores large predators of feline family - lions, leopards, cheetahs, tigers, cougars and jaguars - also have become extinct or turned very rare. The predators depended on small prey which number is quickly restored have more easy gone through this accident. The barbed herzogcat descends of an African wild cat - one of the species who have survived extinction. It has increased in the size (in size with the leopard) and has got the special features of a sexual dimorphism. Main colouring of animals of both sexes is gray-brown with the black spots merging on a ridge in longitudinal dabs, and on a tail and paws - in cross rings. The male has the light white lengthened hair on a chin, reminding a beard. On his shoulders and chest red-brown long hair form similarity of a mantle, the wool on a head is slightly lengthened like a cap. At the female hair on a chin are yellow-coloured. Animals live and hunt by pairs, the male brings to bay prey to the female who has hidden in an ambush. Cats eat herbivores of the medium and small size, cubs of large herbivores, birds and reptiles. At birth of cubs (up to 4 - 5) only the female hunts, the male protects a lair and environmental area from predators and large herbivores. Pairs are formed on different time: at young animals - to one season, at grown up ones to all following life. After death of one of partners the stayed animal can join to family of one of the descendants, taking part in hunting and family affairs. A voice is a mewing and rumbling (as against the present large cats barbed herzogcats are not able to growl), at the case of danger - loud squeal.
