Reptilian Swamp Panda

Reptilian Swamp Panda
The reptilian swamp panda is a large ambush predator native to the jungle planet of Prexiar.

The swamp panda is a stout quadraped with four strong clawed feet, strong shoulders and back, a long thick neck, and a short tail. The beast has a dark purple back covered in protective armor plates and spikes. Black patches cover the creature's face and become a black line that separates the purple back from the pale yellow underbelly.

The swamp panda lies still in the high foliage of the swamps that cover the lowland plains at the center of the craters that cover Prexiar. It pounces on any creature that nears its hiding place. Swamp pandas are highly sensitive to noise and activity and will charge and attack any source of noise or violent activity. It will bite its opponent in its massive jaws and drag them away through the forest. Often, several swamp pandas occupy the same location. They will react to the commotion at the same time, each biting and dragging away a different victim.

Reptilian swamp pandas will abandon the fight and flee if seriously wounded.
