A two-legged bird with it's head and body in one. It has pretty impressive plumage.
A carnivore and a territorial predator, it attacks with it's razor sharp beak and at the same time rakes it's prey with it's talons. It is flightless, though it can leap long distances. They've been known to attack ponies, but it's not something that's very common.

Emerald Jewel and Joyride encounter one in some caves south of Whitherwater.
