The Accipiptero was a flying predator native to the jungles of the planet Dagobah. As the largest reptavian on the planet, its size meant that the accipiptero was only able to fly freely in the upper levels of the jungle, where they preyed upon other canopy-dwellers, such as greater bogwings and jubba-birds. Using the wicked hook on their lower jaws to snare prey, accipipteros used their small hands on their winfs to maneuver captured creatures into their mouths. These creatures rarely ventured to lower levels, and had to stay relatively close to their nests to protect them from creatures who would prey on their young. Ironically the same creatures the accipiptero preyed upon, preyed upon the accipiptero in turn.
