Quetzalcoatlus 5e d&d Dinosaur

quetzalcoatlus 5e was an enormous flying dinosaur. (Huge beast pterosaur, unaligned) Relatives of pteranodons, quetzalcoatluses were massive flying animals with wingspans that often exceeded 30 ft (9.1 m). When on the ground, they moved about in a quadruped posture. They spent most maximum of their time on the air. They were not overtly threatening and did not immediately attack unless threatened. When in combat, a quetzalcoatlus in dnd 5e could make devastating attacks when attacking with its powerful bite, especially if diving into its target during the flight. Quetzalcoatluses were familiar with the mountainous areas and beaches of Chult, where small groups of individuals could be spotted flying overhead. In particular, several nests of these animals could be seen in the Mistcliffs.

Pre Historic times

In reality, prehistoric times witnessed Quetzalcoatlus. It was a pterosaur known from the Late Cretaceous period of North America (Maastrichtian stage). It was one of the largest known flying animals of all time. Quetzalcoatlus is a member of the Azhdarchidae family of advanced toothless pterosaurs with unusually long, stiffened necks. Its name comes from the Aztec feathered serpent god, Quetzalcoatl, in Nahuatl. The type and only species is Q. But let us jump into our DND game.

Light Frame. The Quetzalcoatlus is considered to be a Medium animal to determine its carrying capacity.

Iron Stomach. The Quetzalcoatlus has an advantage on saving throws against disease.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The Quetzalcoatlus makes two bite attacks.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 13 (3d6 + 3) piercing damage. If the target is a Small or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 16). Until the grapple ends, the Quetzalcoatlus cannot bite another target.

Swallow. The Quetzalcoatlus makes a bite attack against a Small or smaller creature it has grappled. The attack hits, the target is swallowed, and the grapple ends. While swallowed, the target is blinded and restrained. It has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the Quetzalcoatlus. It takes 7 (3d4) acid damage at the start of each of Quetzalcoatlus’s turns. A quetzalcoatlus can have only one creature swallowed at a time.

Suppose the Quetzalcoatlus takes eight damage or more on a single turn from the swallowed creature. In that case, the Quetzalcoatlus must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw at the end of that turn or regurgitate the animal, which falls prone in a space within 10 feet of the Quetzalcoatlus. If the Quetzalcoatlus dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained and can escape from the corpse by 15 feet of movement, exiting 5e prone.

Summary

Quetzalcoatlus 5e in dnd is a flying reptile of close relation to pteranodon that reaches wingspans of 36 feet and acts as terrestrial predators, preying upon small animals though they share pteranodon’s opportunism. These giraffe-sized pterosaurs also possess a toothless beak that comes to a sharp point. Another feeding behaviour they have is stealing kills from smaller predators and scavenging off dead creatures.
