    She is a predator posing as a house pet

    I heard someone said, "She is a predator posing as a house pet" to another man in an American movie.

    I got the drift of the words.

    Is "a predator posing as a house pet" an idiom?

    Thank you~

    No, it's just a smart line someone wrote for the movie.

    The line is very similar to the idiom 'a wolf in sheep's clothing'.

    The idiom might have originated from 'They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.'── Matthew 7:15
