         tawny coat with black spots [syn: Panthera pardus]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Heb. namer, so called because spotted, Cant. 4:8), was that
    great spotted feline which anciently infested the mountains of
    Syria, more appropriately called a panther (Felis pardus). Its
    fierceness (Isa. 11:6), its watching for its prey (Jer. 5:6),
    its swiftness (Hab. 1:8), and the spots of its skin (Jer.
    13:23), are noticed. This word is used symbolically (Dan. 7:6;
    Rev. 13:2).
