The Terraire are incredibly large reptilian creatures that are capable of mimicking the terrain around them. Their flattened alligator-like bodies are easily able to pose as a rough ridge or elevated surface, some Terraire are even capable of burrowing under the surface of the ground to further hide themselves.
Usually hunting in mountainous or rocky regions where prey would have a harder time moving around, the Terraire is incredibly slow moving and relies on surprising it's prey to eat. Despite their large slow-moving bodies, they are incredibly intelligent and can often outwit travelers that have encountered their kind before. It is also important to mention that not all Terraire are dangerous, many older Terraire will not attack intelligent creatures do their ability to fight back and some are even known to assist people to be fed.
