Walking with Monsters: Water Dwellers

Hyneria was a giant, lobe-finned fish from the Devonian. This fish had many similarities to modern killer whales.

Physical appearance and biologyEdit

Hyneria had powerful fins used to propel its massive bulk through the water with ease. It possessed several dorsal and anal fins near its tail and fluke. It had a slender body which was covered in stripes and scales. Its head is very large with large jaws and relatively small eyes.

Behaviour and traitsEdit

Hyneria was a powerful and insatiable predator that feasted on anything it could find. Its jaws were extremely powerful and could clamp down on its prey, either killing it instantly or mortally wounding it. Its teeth were perfect for gripping onto its victims.

The fins of Hyneria were strong and were used to propel it through the water. Having multiple fins meant that its speed and abilities underwater was superpowered.

Hyneria, unlike other fish, had the ability to surge onto land and beach itself without suffocating because of its mass. They did this mainly to reach prey that had strayed onto land to escape its wrath. Hyneria would then clamp down on its prey and then would slam it into the water with its strong jaws.

In Walking with MonstersEdit

Water DwellersEdit

A Hyneria killed a Stethacanthus that was chasing a Hynerpeton. However, once it devoured its prey, the fish turned its attention to the amphibian. As the fish gained on its victim, the Hynerperton escaped by going onto land. The fish then swam off.

The next day, whilst a pair of Hynerpeton were mating, a Hyneria stalked them in the water. However, the amphibians noticed it and retreated to land, narrowly evading its jaws. Unfortunately for the Hynerpeton, the Hyneria dragged itself further onto land and caught the male by surprise. The fish then slammed it into the water and killed it. It then swam off with its prize.
