Coastal Bird Hunter by TheDilophoraptor Coastal Bird Hunter by TheDilophoraptor
Geosuchus aviphilus

A meter long, slender, laterally compressed and flexible protosuchid that specializes in ambushing seabirds and other small animals on rocky coasts on the northern islands of the archipelago. No sexual dimorphish and territorial. Population is restricted to islands where larger or competing predators are either restricted to other habitats or are absent entirely. Low metabolism allows for long periods without activity and sudden periods of high activity when potential prey enters striking distance. Rocky gray with streaks of sand brown in both sexes. Juveniles are purely gray and hunt insects in crevices where they are unreachable for most predators. Breeding is a short and violent affair where the male pins the female to the ground and bites her at the base of the neck to hold her still. 20-60 eggs are covered in sand and beach-growing plants in rocky depressions. Young are precocial and have a high mortality rate.
