: *On the low end*, a three-pack of agile, pint-sized, carnivores.

: Again I'm in need of your indispensable help:

: is it simply the end of somewhere, which is lower, that is a location?

Almost certainly a reference to their small size. An interesting choice of words, though. "On the low end" is often used to describe those items that are cheapest on a price list or menu. The metaphor works if my guess is right.
