A soft furry pelt harvested from a big cat. It is difficult to pierce and insulates well against heat.
The following animals provide panthera fur.
Panthera fur is the 10th most protective textile in the game and the second highest heat insulation in the game. Being slightly more protective than plainleather and the many similarly-protective leathers and with exceptionally good heat insulation, it is a very good candidate for Dusters and clothing in the early game, especially in hot biomes. However it should be replaced in the mid-game by better materials such as Devilstrand, which is more protective and has identical heat insulation, with dusters receiving priority. As it provides enough sharp protection for even pants and button-down shirts to have a chance to stop attacks, though mostly only at higher qualities, it can be valuable to transition to using panthera fur for those items to save limited stocks of better materials for dusters where they will have more impact while still providing some chance to deflect a blow after AP.
For use in furniture, it has a middle-of-the-road beauty factor, but its eventual redundancy as clothing and the demand for more beatiful textiles like Thrumbofur in other roles makes it a decent choice for improving furniture beauty once the colony has transitioned to more protective textiles.
Panthera fur is a new leather type added in update 0.19/1.0 as a merger of different fur types from big cats: cougarskin, lynxskin, and pantherskin.
