A lIngta' (sometimes rendered "lingta") is an animal native to the Klingon homeworld and transplanted to many worlds in the Empire. A starship, IKV LIngta' is named for this creature.

LIngta' is a sort of beast that makes for good lo mein, but Klingons know it for its ability as a corpse to attract flies. (TNG novel: Q & A)

LIngta' are traditionally hunted with a ghIntaq throwing spear, and are considered an appropriately-sized prey for a youth's "first kill". (DS9 episode: "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places"; TLE novel: The Art of the Impossible)
