Mere skeletal remains are all that is left of the rancher’s herd. The nightmare creature has come again to feed, eyes glowing in the dark, tail thrashing behind it and a long, sinuous tongue slipping in and out of its mouth, tasting the air for its next kill.
Yowie are the plague of any who raise cattle for a living. Their hunger is nigh-insatiable as the stride through warm plains, crushing anything foolish enough to get in their way. Their heads and tails are clearly reptilian, looking somewhat similar to a dark green skin’s. Their bodies are much like those of an overly large ant, sharing the same, right green color but covered in thick scales like a lizard’s. their eyes and tongues are an eerie blood red. The whole creature is some 20 ft. long.

Yowie love striking from ambush, running over their prey with powerful legs and then turning to mop up any survivors with their viscious claws and teath, often slaming creatures behind them with it’s whip-like tail.
Anyone bitten by a Yowie must make a Fort save (DC 19) or take 1d6 points of Constitution damage. After 1 minute, the poison mixes with the blood to form an even deadlier poison, those who fail the second save (at the same save DC) take 2d6 points on Constitution damage.
As a full-round action, a Yowie can move up to twice its land speed and plow over opponents of medium-size or smaller dealing 2d4+6 points of damage. Characters can attempt Ref saves or Attacks of Opportunity as normal. The save DC is 24.
