The aurumvorax (also called the golden gorger) is an extremely vicious creature, attacking any living prey within its territory (and its territory often extends up to 1 mile in all directions away from its lair). The aurumvorax is 3 feet long and weighs about 200 pounds. The creature’s claws end in razor-sharp, copper colored nails. The aurumvorax’s eyes are silver with gold pupils. Small whiskers and hairs near its face are bronze in color.
