Powerful Jaws (Ex) An ogre lion’s muscular jaws threaten a critical hit on a natural roll of 19 or 20.
Oversized Bite (Ex) The ogre lion almost exclusively hunts large creatures, and its dentition is developed for this purpose; bite damage against Large sized beings is 1d8+5.

Ogre lions, classified as thylacoeo to animal experts, are apex hunters that have developed in environments that support various species of megafauna, yet do not possess great size themselves. While not fast, they are stealthy and rarely fail at a kill when they have gotten a hold of it. They get their common name from their favorite humanoid prey, ogres, whom they stalk and ambush with apparent relish. Ogre tribes will often avoid forests for this this reason, as thylacoleos prefer dropping out of trees to attack in this environment. Otherwise, ogre lions hunt megafauna such as diprotodonts, glyptodonts, wooly rhinoceri, and the young and sick of many other species. Ogre lions are marsupials and carry one young at a time, a rather slow reproductive rate. They measure about 10 feet long, and weigh just over 200 pounds, but are compact nonetheless.

On Porphyra
Ogre lions are found throughout the Dagger Peaks region of the Jotun Forest and Giant’s Retreat. Many packs have developed a preference for hunting giant humanoids such as ogres, cave, hill and wood giants, as well as any large herbivores that they can catch. Smaller humanoids in these regions admire these creatures greatly, and possession of a thylacoleo pelt is the sign of a great warrior and leader.
