The taxraks are a group of related monsters that blend mammalian and reptilian features. A typical taxrak is a lean, quadrupedal creature covered in short, slate blue fur. Taxraks are egg layers, producing clutches of large, soft shelled eggs that are buried to keep them warm and well guarded. All taxraks are predatory.
A feature common to all taxrak species is their unusual ears, the pinnea of which are composed of soft, prehensile tissue. The ears are flexible and able to grasp objects with some dexterity. The purpose of these structures is unknown, although dissection has revealed that they contain multiple small muscles and are rich in nervous tissue.
This taxrak species is characterised by a long neck and tail, flexible spine, and wide opening jaws. It hunts like a constrictor snake, using its sinuous body to squeeze and suffocate its prey. Thankfully they are too small to swallow an adult human, but an attack from these creatures is hardly a pleasant way to go.
