Description[edit]

A squealer is a fierce creature about the size of a large gorilla, with long yellow and green fur in alternating splotches. Its form is topped by hunched shoulders and a thrust-forward, pig-like head that is about 2 feet long and mostly mouth filled with sharp tushes. The nearly 4-foot long arm-like forelimbs sprout from the hunched back, and the 3-foot long rear limbs come from high up on the hindquarters. A 5th limb grows from the middle of the back, and its 4-foot length can be turned either forward or rearward. All limbs are tipped with 3 clawed digits, and the forelimb and back appendage are prehensile. Squealers are voracious beasts that inhabit only temperate to tropical forests.
