Salnodists are water-dwelling reptiles that hunt by inching slowly towards their prey and trapping them in their mouths before they can escape. The lower jaw is supported by a flexible bone that allows for a larger mouth. They have no eyes, and instead rely on smell to locate prey. This sense of smell is quite good, and they can detect a fish from at least a mile away. Their teeth are blunt, and they are incapable of chewing, so they must swallow their food whole. They have no predators, as their tough skin is almost impossible to puncture, and it is often covered in algae that make the salnodist much less appetizing. Salnodists can grow to be over eight feet long and weigh more than two thousand pounds.
