A mythical creature that features in the ancient bestiaries of China. It was a tiger with the tail of an ox. The Zhi lived amongst other animals in the mountains. It was a very predacious creature and was known to hunt humans if they entered its territory. The Zhi did not sound like a tiger but instead it barked like a dog.
