The Zoyra comes from the modern day Jaguar. After rainforests were slowly decimated and forced to become a Savannah, the Jaguar evolved into the Zoyra. It has a feather like mane that evolved from the need for camouflage in the long grass. It is smaller than its predecessor for stealth. A bigger target means more surface area to defend and slower reflexes which is the polar opposite of this animal.
