The Ra’akta is a large marine predator, growing up to 10-11 meters (about 35 feet) in length and can weigh up to 10 tons. They are fast, sight based predators the use mainly pectoral fins for locomotion. They have the characteristic split lower “jaw” of most Skathan animals. Their heads are plated with a bone like armor. The olfactory tendrils have evolved to have a much more deadly use, despite looking smooth they have tiny barbs that help grasp prey while eating, however their tendrils are not used for hunting like other, smaller predators. Tendrils are usually retracted.
