In the early game, the first barbarians that may be generated are wild animals. There are four kinds of wild animals, which vary only in their strength and movement:
- Bear (strength 3, move 1)
- Lion (strength 2, move 1)
- Panther (strength 2, move 2)
- Wolf (strength 1, move 2)
Unlike other barbarians, animals can neither move nor attack into any civilization's cultural borders. If you build a city next to an animal, it is relocated outside of the city's border.
