A large
crocodilian creature charges forward with unbelievable speed. Its mouth drips
saliva as it opens with eagerness. Massive teeth rim its short, deep jaw.
There is a strip of red that runs down its back.

Postosuchus
are an early predator that resemble crocodiles in body, but they are much
faster and their jaws are built for crushing rather than thrashing. They are
some 20 ft in length, with a large portion of that length taken up by their
massive maws. They are capable of standing on their back legs for a time is
they need to Intimidate larger creatures or to reach prey that thought they
were safe in trees. They can stand up to about 6 ½ feet. While not
truly dinosaurs, they were the top predators in their time and were unopposed
for 7 million years.

Combat

Crushing
Bite
The bite of a Postosuchus deals significant damage on its own, but also has
a crippling effect on those bitten in case the Postosuchus is unable to keep
up with it. Creatures bitten by a Postosuchus take 1 point of strength damage
for ever bite they receive.
