I have an independent claim like this.
1. An X comprising: ... wherein the animal is at least one of: a cat, a dog, a lion not found in a brazilian zoo, and a mouse.
Here I completely ignored the brazilian zoo to narrow my claims over a prior art.
I would like to focus on the limitations related to the brazilian zoo. Can I construct dependent claims like this?
2. The X of Claim 1, wherein the animal is a lion found in the brazilian zoo, wherein the lion has 3 legs. 3. The X of Claim 1, wherein the animal is a lion found in the brazilian zoo, wherein the lion is blind.
I'm confused here because I already narrowed claim using the words "not found". So can I use the dependent claim to make the claim broad?
