Cave lions are monsters in ADOM. They are most notable for being felines — meaning that the PC should avoid being responsible for their deaths or else face the wrath of the cat lord. Like wild cats, they can be tamed by the PC by feeding them rat corpses or pieces of meat. They can be encountered in packs in mountains in the wilderness.

Monster memory[edit source]

Like all felines, cave lions are the subjects of the mighty cat lord. They are very social animals who live in large families in the highlands of Ancardia. They are also very lazy and only go hunting when there is no food left, so when you meet a solitary cave lion, it will probably be very hungry. Their favourite hunting grounds are the dungeons where they can easily creep up on their prey. They certainly don't spurn the meaty taste of a careless adventurer.
