Chatloup passant (Period)

Chatloup passant (Period)

The chatloup is a monster with the face of a cat, the body of a wolf, and the serrated horns of an antelope.  It was also called a “calopus”, “catwolf,” or “catalope” [Dennys 153].  It doesn’t seem to have a default posture; the illustration shows a chatloup passant, based on the canting crest of Cathorne, 1553 [Gwynn-Jones 76].
