Ammit is female but I totally dig manes and it would look so bland without it.
The lion part of her is sometimes substituted with a cheetah but brute strength appealed to me more than speed. Also, HIP-HOP-O-POTAMUS LEGS LOL!
The only things that could have made this the ultimate destroyer from Africa would be: Black Mamba, (flying) Great White Shark, and Ebola.
