Size: Stands about 5 feet tall, weighs approximately 150 pounds.

Character: Closely related to Deinognathus, this much smaller and lighter predator leads a very different lifestyle. They live in couples that stay together for life. But the female does all the hunting. She hunts down any medium to large prey she can capture and carry back to the male. Therapeds and medium to large rodents are the favorite prey, but also medium deer and antelope can be taken. They are diurnal animals, and use their senses of hearing and sight in hunting. They prefer to use the surprise method, but also will give chase whenever necessary. A single fawn is born and guarded by both parents, who will viciously attack any creature that threatens or gets too close to the fawn.
