Dimetrodon

Edit Page Content

The massive sail on the back of this squat Reptilian Creature flexes and twitches as the beast stalks forward.

A dimetrodon is a quadrupedal reptile similar in shape to a Crocodile, but with a blunter snout filled with jagged, sharp teeth. Its most distinguishing feature is the massive sail that runs the length of its back. By extending or contracting the fin, the cold-blooded reptile can control its body temperature with ease. While they are not technically dinosaurs, dimetrodons are still often found dwelling in regions inhabited by such creatures.

A fully grown adult dimetrodon can reach a length of up to 15 feet and weigh upward of 2,000 pounds.

Special Abilities

Tearing Bite (Ex) A dimetrodon's jaws are filled with razor-sharp teeth of two different sizes. This gives the Creature a threat range of 1920 with its bite attack.
