On Skull Island there are a great number of mysterious and bizarre creatures. One of them being the infamous SkullCrawler.
This intelligent and savage creature was one, if not the, deadliest creature on the island. taking a good number of the crew members.
During the second voyage (of which I was part of), it was studied with detail and caution, due to its nature.
And we came to the conclusion. Its a highly derived and advanced chameleon species. Reaching 8-9 meters, some 12.
When first on the island it spent time growing and rising up the food chain, getting bigger & bigger and for some reason more subterranean.
But still coming out to feed and mate. Such traits of its ancestors are still visible like an elastic tongue (although shorter), semi prehensile tail,
pads of fused toes, and slight color changing abilities. It acts as a hunter of big game, and chaser of smaller things as well. Reaching apex predator niche.
Very explosive energy, good for hunting all sorts of things. Caution strongly advised!
