Region of origin: California, United States

Descriptions of the tripodero vary between a bird-like or kangaroo-like animal (and there’s one version that’s like a boar with four spindly legs but it’s called Tripodero ffs) but the universal aspects of the creature are telescoping legs, a long tail used to balance and an extendable blowpipe-like mouth structure. The tripodero will track prey low in the field, moving rapidly through the brush on short legs until it gets in range, then extend itself upward above the bushline and fire packed mud-pellets it stores in its cheeks through its mouth to debilitate its target with stunning accuracy.
