Banths are huge, multi-legged, cat-like creatures from "John Carter of Mars," by Edgar Rice Burroughs. They are described as "Barsoomian lions," ten feet long, with six legs, and a large, tooth filled mouth that extends nearly the whole length of it's head. They are depicted as group hunters that howl and yelp at night akin to wolves.
