Ecology: The second largest animal to be found on Skull Island, Asperdorsus can measure anywhere from 36 to 42 feet in length, shorter than Vastatosaurus Rex, but far heavier. They are found in the jungles and despite their great size, are quite adept at maneuvering around the dense stands of trees. Using their acute sense of smell, Asperdorsus seeks out ripe fruit ready to fall, as well as a wide variety of midlevel plant growth too high for other herbivores to reach and too low for Brontosaurus to bother with.

Normally solitary, Asperdorsus come together to mate, the males displaying by stamping down small areas of forest, with the females responding by mating with the largest, nosiest, and most destructive of the males.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: Along with its great size, Asperdorsus has a hide covered in thickly studded armor, while long spines extend along the spine and under the neck. Asperdorsus is also deft with its tail, and can shatter an attacker's leg with a single blow.

Appearance: Asperdorsus is a rather narrow-bodied sarupod with a long neck and tail. Grayish in color, it has back covered in small armored plates as well as rigid spines running along its spine.

Designer's Notes: I used a scaled down Brontosaurus from the HERO System Bestiary to create Asperdorsus. It didn't appear in King Kong.
