This giant serpentine monster has five pairs of arachnoid legs spaced five feet apart along a coiled, snake-like body. Atop an eight-foot neck, the crocodilian head sports gaping jaws from which protrude many teeth. The 10-foot-long tail terminates in a huge, scorpion-like stinger. Two huge scorpion-like pincers flank its serpentine body. Overall, the creature measures about 50 feet in length.
