'The Zebra Griffin, or White Tiger Griffin as it is perhaps more commonly known, is fleet of foot and wing. It not for the Eagle Griffin, which is a combination of the king of the birds, the eagle, and the king of the beasts, the lion, it would be considered to be the king of the Griffins. As it is, it would have to be 'royalty' at the least, as its very close griffin relative, the Tiger Griffin. The black and white lines of the Zebra Griffin help to break up its appearance in the eyes of some animals, and to diguise is as it sails above the treetops. It has one of the top flight speeds of the Griffin species, and has a running speed almost equal to that of a horse, which can be sustained for a long period of time. This is an unusual characteristic: most griffins rely on their flight as a means of travel. Some people believe is a peaceful beast, as it rarely attacks people, hardly ever samples meat, and is mostly shy of human contact. But having the untamed temperament of the lion and a bird of prey combined, it is unpredictable, and most likely could never be tamed. As with other Griffins, all attempts to domestic the Zebra Griffin have only brought disaster. The Zebra or White Tiger Griffin is best left in the wilds, and should be only caught by the human eye.'
