While drinking from the river, you are startled by an odd fish-lizard. It gives a wet snarl and slips back into the mud.

Tiktaaliks, also known as “God-Killers”, are odd little creatures seeming to be made of both fish and amphibians. Their nick-name comes from the habit of being hunted down by clerics for seeming to be able to destroy any creation myth for being alive.

Tiktaalik have a +2 racial bonus on Hide and Listen checks. The Hide bonus increases to +4 while in muddy areas.
