Ecology: A common jungle herbivore, Tree-tops are ceratopians who have evolved to be far more agile than their huge brethren, such as Ferrucutus. Like Ferrucutus, Tree-tops are herd-dwellers, but they are much leaner and lithe, able to work their way between the massive boles of jungle trees with ease. There they feed on leaves and undergrowth, as well as seasonal falls of fruit and nuts.

Tree-tops tend to travel in small herds comprised of several adults males, females, and young. During mating season the males will fight over access to the females, the contests basic being glorified shoving matches.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: A Tree-top tends to run from any danger and is fast enough to escape most predators. If defending a nest or young, males will form a wall of bone with their head shields, using their short nose horns to drive off any attackers.

Appearance: A Tree-top has a highly streamlined ceratopsian body, with long legs and a narrow body. Coloration is tan, with a while belly and scattered black stripes.

Designer's Notes: I used the Horse character sheets from the HERO System Bestiary to create the Tree-top. It didn't appear in King Kong.
