This is the sixteenth 4E Anatomy of a Creature, an ongoing series about Earthdawn Fourth Edition. Introduction and Index.

Everything contained here is the work of a fan and not associated with FASA Games.

The huge crocodile is another example of a new creature generated through the use of a template. In this instance, it got a lot bigger. Because sometimes you just need a huge crocodile. Other days you may need a massive crocodile, but that is a different entry.
