This reptile is about the size of a small dog. It is lizard-like in shape, but it carries its legs underneath it like a crocodile and has a crocodile-like head.

Euparkerias are about 3 feet long, stand about 1 foot off the ground, and weigh around 20 pounds. They eat meat, scavenging when they can and feeding on fish, amphibians and other smaller reptiles. When food is scarce, they join into flocks to hunt larger prey- a pack of six or eight can and will attack man-sized opponents, especially solitary ones.

Euparkerias prefer to attack from ambush and in numbers. They flee if their prey offers a stiff resistance, however, or if one or more of their number is slain.

Sprint (Ex): Once per hour, a euparkeria can move 6 times its normal speed (180 feet) when it makes a charge.
