Civilization Wiki

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 Bear (strength 3, move 1)
  • Lion Lion (strength 2, move 1)
  • Panther Panther (strength 2, move 2)
  • Wolf 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.

Scouts have +100% combat strength against animals. A unit with 5 or more experience gains no additional experience from fighting animals.
