Redesigning a classic Final Fantasy monster.
A fan creation for the Monster Hunter series. It's habitat is primarily atop the thick trees of the ancient forest and it uses it's skin flaps to glide through the sky as it stalks its prey. It's hooked tail allows it to quickly adjust its direction mid-flight by latching onto branches and its hardened head protects it from blows as well as dealing massive damage to its prey.
This creature is based on pachycephalosaurs, sugar gliders and parrots.
