The Caragaths were an even deadlier predator to the well-known Caragor, the Caragath is the most feared hunter of the plains to the North of Núrn. It hunts alone, and prefers to kill quickly and quietly with a single strike. They are savage predators that even hunt their own young... None but stealthy survive the adulthood.
To date, Sauron's force have failed to tame the Caragaths. Countless Uruks have fallen to surprise attacks, not only from the bushes, but from below and above as the predators climb and leap into lightning fast strikes.
