Thazuerian Beak-Snapper

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The thazuerian beak-snapper is a large scavenger that also hunts by chasing prey over cliffs or into dead ends. Its sharp beak and powerful jaws served as a perfect tools to rip, cut and crush the most resistant flesh and bones. The neck is short and muscular to hold up the large and heavy head. As a scavenger, it often chases other animals away from their prey, because few dares to pick a fight against such jaws. The front legs with long claws are mostly used for cleaning and grooming itself (and in some cases their partner), but also for ripping up carcass, digging up/down stored leftovers, scaring away opponents by waving with them and protect the thoat during fights. There are a few legends about this animal, mostly with heroes fighting its brutal strength and deadly jaws. Sadly enough, this animal has through generations been mercilessly hunted for its beautiful and thick fur, and as an initiation rite where the head is taken as a trophy. --------- Polychromos colour pencils on drawing paper.
