There is both a page for "Tallstrider" and "Strider". Perhaps there should only be one?

Tallstrider TribeEdit

The proper name of the beast? Edit

I was wondering if Strider is the correct name for these beasties. Most people call them Striders, but if a Hunter tames one, the species name default is "Tallstrider". (The page for Carrion Birds got fixed with their proper this one in need of it too?) --Presea 18:11, 6 December 2006 (EST)

I would just make explicit reference to "tallstrider" as the name for the creature when tamed and redirect to strider. I don't think calling them tallstriders is correct since most of the mobs are named just something strider and not something tallstrider. --Fandyllic (talk) 4:05 PM PST 6 Dec 2006
Oh yeah, I remembered that this ancient Arathi Basin preview featured one as a pet of a Hunter. It was called a "Tallstrider": [1] "Shrieking in rage at its master being in danger, the tallstrider raked and stomped on its fallen foe relentlessly." --Presea 23:13, 7 December 2006 (EST)

It should be "tallstrider", that is the official name of the creature, and all of its subspecies [1] (MoM 169,200).Baggins 19:27, 27 December 2006 (EST)

Done! --  Kirkburn talk contr 20:10, 31 December 2006 (EST)

Tallstrider's diet and behavior Edit

It's rather funny that the tallstrider is described in the Manual of Monsters as a vicious carnivore; most tallstriders in-game are neutral and those tamed by hunters will not eat meat, but will happily eat cheese. --Presea 01:13, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Real life Tallstrider Edit

Real life Tallstrider Actually a south america Terrorbird, i have added it as inspiration on the mainpage--Gurluas (talk) 14:43, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

My guess is that the tallstrider is based off of the cassowary ([2]) bird - one of the colors of tallstriders mimics its coloration, and tallstriders also have its characteristic casque (the bony head covering). Rutéa (talk) 02:10, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Real life animal Edit

Tallstriders resemble Cassowaries more than Ostriches, no doubt about it, with the crest, the colours and the mean attitude. —This unsigned comment is by Junique (talkcontribs) 15:38, October 8, 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Yup, it definitely looks more like a Cassowary than an Ostrich. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 13 Oct 2011 11:51 AM Pacific
