Yes, MTA is Monsters & Treasures of Aihrde. There are lots of normal animal writeups in there.
Thanks

I had forgotten that. I need to flip through it to see if it covers anything I've thrown together for my girls game.

This may be a tangent to the OP but it may fit or may help expand the idea My girls and one of their friends recently started playing and one thing I am trying to do is get them to break out of their painfully shy mindset. So I encourage role playing not just in the adventure but in the town when th...

I do prefer monsters like spiders scorpions wasps etc especially for lower lever players. Well all of them except ant lions … for some reason (and I won't nam...

And I also like the fact that C&C preserved the uneven advancement of character classes.
Yes, if a GM didn't understand AD&D and why the uneven progression tables they will create PCs of wildly uneven power. This was one of the MAJOR flaws in 3x.
