Species: Deinochelys podophilius
Common Name/s: Stumper, Cobblers Bane, Foot-eater
Size: Body 1 meter long, often more
Habitat: Rivers and lakes across Notor
The absence of large aquatic predators on Notor resulted in the evolution of this large, predatory Turtiforme. The horrific common names and equally horrific reputation of this creature, including a horror movie franchise, stems from several unfortunate incidents early in Snaiads history, where swimmers feet were bitten off and eaten. Usually feeding on smaller vertebrates and arthrognaths, attacks on humans are nothing more than mistaken identity, nonetheless warnings are still posted at popular swimming locations and particularly aggresive individuals are relocated.
Oblivious to its fearsome image, D podophilius swims around rivers and lakes, seeking prey out with its unusually long second head tendril, and then dispatching it with its powerful "jaws".
