A | Z Challenge - Hvern

The Hvern is a pterodactyl-like creature that lives in the rookeries of the Gaal on Mars.  This reptile reaches wingspans of twelve feet and can be as large as ten feet long with a slender torso. The vestigial appendages that form the creatures fingers are elongated to form their wings.

Hvern are mostly carnivorous subsisting on a diet mainly of smaller reptiles that live on the sea bottoms. They live in small flocks of about ten to thirty individuals and breed in the summer when the Martian sun is at its apex. These creatures are used as areal cavalry by the savage races on Mars including the Gaal.
