Savage Earth: Cold Moon
Shovelbill’s are scientifically known as Anatotitan (pronounced /əˌnætɵˈtaɪtən/ ə-NAT-o-TYE-tən, “large duck”), a genus of flat-headed or hadrosaurine hadrosaurid ornithopod dinosaur (a “duck-billed dinosaur”). It is a large animal, up to approximately 12 meters (39 ft) in length, with an extremely long and low skull. Anatotitan exhibits one of the most striking examples of the “duckbill” snout common to hadrosaurs.
Shovelbill’s are employed by river traders to pull large flatboats and barges as well as other forms of manual labour in or around waterways. Mokole are known to tame them completely and to use them as amphibian mounts. it appears that the Mokole ability to make complecated sounds with thier crests works to sooth and enthrall Shovelbills to some degree.
