The Kdatlyno is a fictitious alien species. It appeared in a minor role in Larry Niven's Known Space universe.

Kdatlyno are primiarily know for their touch sculpture, radar vision and for being a race subjugated by the ferocious, warlike Kzin.

They are a physically large and powerful bipedel species with muscular build and thick hides growing up to eight feet tall. Kdatlyno are one of the few sentient races that can physically intimidate an adult Kzin.

There is at least one instance documented of them being used as elite Imperial Guards for the Patriarch, presumably due to both their great strength and their uninvolvement in Kzin imperial court mischief.
