The altagak was a reptilian creature from the planet Altora. Known for its cunning, stealth, and speed, the altagak was thought to be the apex predator of Altora. Solitary hunters, they would usually surprise victims, jumping out from a hidden area and attacking. However they could also chase down their prey and have been recorded to reach speeds of up to eighty kilometers per hour. The average lifespan of an altagak was thought to be about twenty-eight standard years.
