There is both a page for "Tallstrider" and "Strider". Perhaps there should only be one?
The link for the Tallstrider Tribe for Tauren links here. Wtf? Saimdusan
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 name...is 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. -- (talk) 4:05 PM PST 6 Dec 2006

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
My guess is that the tallstrider is based off of the cassowary () 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 (talk • contribs) 15:38, October 8, 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
- Yup, it definitely looks more like a Cassowary than an Ostrich. -- (talk · contr) 13 Oct 2011 11:51 AM Pacific
