Ecology: Scimitdons are agile arboreal predators, who spend much of their time in the branches of Skull Island's massive trees, using them as aerial roadways. Normally solitary (unless part of a mated pair), Scimitdons hunt birds and lizards and can even take down some of the large flightless birds.

Females will lay eggs in groups of two to three in hollow trees or caves under tree roots. She will stay with the clutch and keep it warm while the male will hunt for food for her and the newly-hatched pups. The pair will stay together until the pups are four months old, at which point the male will leave. The pups will then stay with their mother until the next breeding season, at which point she will drive them away and seek out a new mate.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: Capable of leaps of 20 feet or more, Scimitdon can travel great distances through the trees without ever touching the ground. They use this leaping ability to spring down on their prey, often lying in wait on a high branch and dropping down from above. A single bite from their powerful jaws and their target is done for.

Appearance: A Scimitdon has a long-tailed narrow body with a heavy-jawed head equipped with large saberteeth. Their scales are a golden-tan color and a jagged series of small dorsal fins runs down its spine.

Designer's Notes: Scimitdon was developed using the Sabertooth Tiger seen in the HERO System Bestiary. It didn't appear in King Kong.
