The Leucrocotta (or Leukrokotta or Corocotta) was a creature that was native to Africa. It had the body of a stag, the neck of a lion, hooves, and a very wide mouth that had a sharp ridge rather than teeth.
- The Leucrocotta was most likely an exaggerated explanation of a hyena.
- The Leucrocotta was said to be able to imitate the voices of people to lure them as their prey.
