6.1 g Immigrants

Saber Tooth Cats DNA = PAA
Prey Suitability 14.1 makes it not able to eat Ruminant Bison DNA = BGGP as it does not match anything on that list. Not 14.1 a, b, c, d, or e.

This goes for Humans too; as well as Bear-dogs and Terminator Pigs.
None of these can eat the Ruminant Bison because they are not suited to eat it. But it seems like some of these Predators would be able to eat a Bison in the real world. You can get bison burgers at some grocery stores.

Predators only need to match Prey roadrunner DNA, not dietary DNA. So, yes, just about everyone can eat bison.

Predators don't need to match any of the prey's DNA except roadrunner (red) DNA. Since the Bison has no roadrunner DNA, it's a tasty snack for the Saber Tooth Cats. I mean really, what kind of simulationist game would it be if a Saber Tooth can't eat a bison?!

The dietary DNA (blue text) is only used to determine edibility of biomes for herbivores. The only time non-roadrunner DNA matters for a predator is if they're competing against other predators, when P DNA might be contested.

...if he is the correct size, i.e. prey size +/- 1. Just mention it because I forgot sometimes.

Good reminder, Lutz - note this only applies to player Predators as Immigrant Predators always match the size of their prey.
