Sir John Mandeville told of gold-digging ants that lived there.

There were large hills of gold and the ants would separate the gold from the dirt. But the ants were as big as dogs, and nobody dared to go near them. Men could go in and steal the gold using two different methods: In the summer when it was hot, the ants would stay in their holes during the mid-day sun. Then men could come on camels or horses and take the gold. In other seasons, they would send in young horses with empty containers on them. The ants, who cannot stand to leave anything unfilled, would fill the containers with gold, and then the horses would be called back mystery cats

British big cats, also referred to as ABCs (Alien, or Anomalous, Big Cats), phantom cats and mystery cats, are Felidae which are not native to Britain which are reported to inhabit the British countryside.
