LAZA TIGER (DUNE)
Dune Universe by Frank Herbert
The Laza Tiger was a powerful feline predator which was able to survive in harsh environments. As a result it was found, at least occasionally, on both Arrakis and Salusa Secundus.
Two laza tigers were used by House Corrino in a failed attempt to assassinate the Atreides twins Leto II and Ghanima on Arrakis.
Behind the scenes
- Lhasa is one of Tibet’s largest, oldest and most prominent cities. In the real world, tigers are not native to the Lhasa Valley or the Tibetan Plateau, however they are native to the nearby southern slopes of the Himalayas.
