- "A bird with broad wings. Its large tail is used as a balancer for flying."

Pelcatraz is a large, bird-like creature that has a tendency of swarming prey in herds. They typically spawn among smaller enemies or with other Pelcatraz. They are very agile when they hunt, which is in stark contrast to their overweight counterparts, Pelcatobur.
Pelcatraz' body is covered in flesh-colored down with a purple wattle made of thick skin attached to its neck. Atop its head, in between its small eyes, is an ornate crest that begins in a dark grey color that is the same as its beak, turns white, and ends in yellow. Its beak is long and serrated, which allows the duck-like bird to catch prey without worry that their meal will escape. Its dark, webbed feet each have three forward facing toes.
A Pelcatraz has a long wing span which gives the bird the ability to easily perform a number of aerial strikes against foes on the ground. The feathers on its wings are attached to the lumpy, purple flesh of the bird's arm. Its wing colors are flesh-colored like its body and end in black. As an aid to help it maneuver in the air, the bird has a long tail acting as a balancer. Purple flesh can be observed protruding out from the down at the end of the tail.
Pelcatraz can prove to be one of the most dangerous enemies in the Ozette Wetlands. Their spawn rates tend to happen a lot more often online or on higher difficulties in single player, usually accompanied by other creatures and Pelcatraz.
These enemies have the advantage of flight, so they can fly into a part of the map that could be inaccessible to those using melee weapons. Having a ranger or a force in the party would help greatly when dealing with these.
Pelcatraz has two types of attacks, the first being a tail sweep which creates a frontal shock wave that can travel a few feet from it which can knock low level players off their feet. They also have an attack that involves them doing an upwards spiral attack which can do a great amount of damage.
