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 three clawed digits, and the forelimb and back appendage are prehensile. Squealers are voracious beasts that inhabit only temperate to tropical forests.
