A Seven foot long wyvern from nose to tale tip.
they sun bath on the shores of rocky beaches and islands dozing by day and by night they slip into the ocean to hunt their food.
They're pack hunters and are often in groups of ten. They will hunt anything that swims save for a few odd things like puffer fish who are to gnarly and not worth trying to eat in any case.
a pack of ten can take down a great white shark easily since there are more of them and each one has more teeth and claws than the shark.
they especially like jellyfish.
young Sea wyverns often play in the shallows terrorizing any small fish nearby.as younglings they watch the adults hunt and learn. small four footers will soon be corralling small fish and so on around the shallows and feasting on seafood and seaweed.
story's only got about that they like sinking ships after an unfortunate seaman went out on a little boat and wyvern waters and the wyvern who thought it was a big fish bit through the hull.
the seaman escaped missing a leg and they wyvern decided after the meal made them ill that whatever it was they bit into was not for biting.
however word still got around and the sea wyvern where soon considered man eaters and so only those with big enough ships sailed out.
the wyverns after sinking one more ship came to the conclusion that the stuff floating out was drift wood and not worth eating.
the young following the adults example soon left these boats alone when they got older and soon wyvern stopped attacking ships.
However wyvern liked to play with driftwood and so anyone going out on anything small as a rowing boat would in all likelihood capsize or if he was lucky he would simply lose an ore and row home with the one while they where distracted with the stolen ore.
the males have beards while the females don't and during egg laying season in the summer the males guard the egg clusters on the shores which are about 4 eggs in total at usual count.
sensible sailors avoid such guards since the males guard the clusters close together and any one inclined to go down the wyverns beach front in egg laying season would soon be met by at least twenty to thirty males hissing like gators and showing rows of sharp hook like teeth.
In the water they're graceful swimmers but on land the visual affect is like being confronted by a really pissed off tank with teeth.
all in all water wyverns are ok as long as you don't mess with them and sail a big ship.
