Crodlu are a species of flightless, scaled avian‐like creatures that roams the wilderness in herds. Crodlu have great endurance and can run at high speeds for long periods of time. This creature is a large, flightless combination of bird and reptile. It has wicked claws at the end of its long fore and hind limbs, and its scaly hide is a yellowish red, with similar colors along its side and underbelly

Crodlu have very poor eyesight, but make up for it with an excellent sense of smell.
Nature DC 15
Crodlu inhabit warm plains, and are not found close to civilization except when domesticated. They mainly feed on seeds and other plant matter; occasionally they also eat insects such as locusts and hurrum, but will eat almost anything given the opportunity. The life span of a crodlu is from 30 to 70 years, with 50 being typical.
Territorial males will typically use hisses and other sounds to fight for a harem of two to seven female. The winner of these fights will breed with all the females in an area, but will only form a pair bond with the dominant female.
Nature DC 20:
Crodlu are oviparous. The females will lay their single fertilized eggs in a single communal nest, a simple pit, scraped in the ground by the male. The nest may contain 15 to 60 eggs. They are glossy and cream in color, with thick shells marked by small pits. The gestation period is 45 to 60 days. Typically, the male will defend the hatchlings, and teach them how and on what to feed.
