A leocrotta has an animal body. It has no hands. It is an omnivore.
... the leucrocotta, a wild beast of extraordinary swiftness,
the size of the wild ass, with the legs of a Stag, the neck,
tail, and breast of a lion, the head of a badger, a cloven
hoof, the mouth slit up as far as the ears, and one continuous
bone instead of teeth; it is said, too, that this animal can
imitate the human voice.
