STONi - Freshwater Crocodile

ANiMOZ #006

Code: STONi

Common name: Freshwater Crocodile

Taxonomy: Crocodylus johnstoni

Level: APEX | Form: PREDATOR

Status: COMMON | BiOME: RIVER

Overcomes: Fire | Flood

SUPERPOWERS:

ANTI-RIPPLE:

The specialised ridges along STONi’s back, along with millennia of evolution of intricate muscular control, make his Anti-ripple Superpower possible! Skimming the surface without the tell-tale sign of ripples means he can get within striking distance of almost anything he deems as prey…

DEATH ROLL:

Once she has her target in her mouth, STONi is ready to launch into her Death Roll - spinning rapidly along her length whilst clutching a victim between her jaws. This power can be used on land or in the water, and can turn her food into more digestible pieces.

WEAKNESSES:

CONSTRICTION:

STONi automatically loses a Clash to any species with the CONSTRICTION Superpower

POISON:

Although STONi may survive some venoms that would kill other species, there are some toxins that will defeat her. Some Invasive Species that she did not evolve alongside are a real weakness for STONi, as she doesn’t realise they aren’t a good meal.
