This is a beastie from my Kaine storyline, called a scartell. This guy is about 8 ft at the shoulder (on his hind legs) and 20 ft from nose-tip to stinger-tip, an average sized male. But oddly enough, they don't weigh that much. They originate from the Kuthrite Plains, as do quite a number of other mean carnivores, so these beasties aren't the nicest. But for the people who do survive on these Plains they make excellent mounts, if raised from the egg, and people will pay large fortunes for a well-trained scartell. Now, just to get an egg away from the nest, and the very large, very irratable mother guarding it... Oh, and the marking on his flank is like a brand. Nothing special.
