Segnothus (サラマチ, Saramachi) is a Fanged Wyvern.

Physiology

Segnothus is a large, amphibious, salamander-like Fanged Wyvern. Its body is dark brown with irregular orange patterns. Their undersides are covered in large, yellow blotches. Each individual has a unique pattern. Its dorsoventrally flattened head has orange, star-shaped gills on its cheeks along with two, small, semicircular black fins that extend from the top of its beady eyes to the back of its head. There is little neck to distinguish its head from the rest of its body. Its tail fin is long, broad, and silver with jagged edges. Its has thick legs with four clawed toes on its front feet and five on its back feet. All four feat have webbing between the toes.

Abilities

Segnothus has slick skin covered in an oily substance. The fluid allows it to move swiftly through water and mud, along with the webbing on its feet. This oil is produced in its body and it can be spit at predators to repel them. The fins on its body are sensitive to changes in its environment and it will flee should it sense incoming danger.

Behavior

Segnothus has notoriously dim intellect, and often forgets what it was doing. Sluggish by nature, it tends to bump into objects inadvertently while swimming. It takes a long time to respond to outside stimuli. For example, it can take up to five seconds to process pain. It hunts for food by leaving its mouth wide open in water and waiting for its prey to draw near.

Habitat

Segnothus lives in clean bodies of freshwater and muddy swamps.

Biological Adaptations

Segnothus's skin is covered in an oily substance. This fluid allows it to move swiftly through water and mud, along with the webbing on its feet. This oil is produced in its body and is secreted through pores in its skin. It can also be spat at predators in the form of globules to repel them. The fins on its body are sensitive to changes in its environment and it will flee should it sense incoming danger. It takes a long time to respond to outside stimuli. For example, it can take up to five seconds to process pain. This is perhaps due to its primitive nervous system.
