Ecology: Not a true dinosaur, but a cynodont ("dog-tooth"), Dinocanisaurus live in small packs of around a dozen adults and an equal number of young. The pack is ruled by an alpha female and all pack members have well-defined roles, be it raising the young, defending the den, or hunting. Dinocanisaurus tend to dwell in shallow caves dug out under trees or in cracks and crevices in the forest floor. If the hunting is good, several females will give birth to pups, but in lean years, the alpha female will destroy the eggs and pups of lower-ranking females.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: Pack hunters, Dinocanisaurus are highly social animals and hunt as a team, using tactics similar to wolves and the far larger Venatosaurus (although Venatosaurus are capable of even more complex plans and will gladly prey on Dinocanisaurus if able). When hunting the Dinocanisaurus will climb into the trees (as far as they can) and will use various whistles, snorts, and other calls to coordinate their actions, attempting to outflank and corner prey items.

Appearance: Dinocanisaurus is a small dog-sized and dog-shaped cynodont, combining elements of reptiles and early mammals. The body is a bluish-gray and heavily scaled.

Designer's Notes: I used the Guard/Combat Dog character sheet, combined with the Wolf character sheet from the HERO System Bestiary to create Dinocanisaurus. It didn't appear in King Kong.
