This giant bird roams the infamous foothills of Yaum and resembles a turkey with a blue and red snood. The Devouring Turkey of Yaum is massive, reaching fifteen feet in height. It is also very carnivorous, preferring the flesh of humanoids (particularly Halflings and Humans). The people in the region it inhabits have come to fear its ungainly waddle and distinctive cackle. When fearful it can split, producing an identical (and equally dangerous) duplicate of itself. In addition to this and its powerful beak, the Devouring Turkey can create a vortex of wind with its gobble, enabling it to inhale prey. No one knows for sure if there is a single Devouring Turkey of Yaum or if many dwell in the foothills. Some believe there are always two at any given time. Technically the Devouring Turkey of Yaum is a type of Monstra, an animal born with the unnatural powers of a Sertori (see page 393 of the Sertorius rulebook).
