A clubnek is a large flightless bird resembling an ostrich found roaming meadowlands and forests. It is primarily an herbivore subsisting on a diet of plants and flowers, though it is given to flights of unpredictability when it takes the role of hunter and predator.
A clubnek stands 7 feet tall and weighs about 350 pounds.
Clubneks are generally nonaggressive unless threatened or frightened, though they are known to occasionally have fits of erratic behavior that cause them to become quite aggressive. In such a case, they attack until slain or driven off. If its prey attempts to flee, the clubnek often runs it down and continues combat.
A clubnek attacks by slashing with its claws and stabbing with its hard bony beak.
