The bengalaas hunts in packs and is a fearsome predator. It has been noted to play with their prey like a house cat plays with a mouse. Their pack hunting tactics are acutely intelligent, capable of bringing down prey several times their size.
Even prior to the Great War, bengalaases were hunted by terrans for sport.
Some bengalaases are kept in the terran-operated Bengalaas Exhibit and by 2504, had been introduced to Korhal's ecosystem.
Bengalaas appear as critters in StarCraft on the jungle (Aiur) tileset. If killed, they will disappear in a blue flash, akin to protoss organic units. For the protoss this is caused by a teleportation device to retrieve wounded soldiers, while the reason for the flash is unknown for the bengalass.
- The feline's name is a variation on the Bengal Tiger, but it is actually closer to a panther in appearance and habitat preference.
- In StarCraft: Cartooned, the bengalaas is changed to resemble the Carbot Animations interpretation of a murloc from the Warcraft series.
