The somewhat skittish fish eater, Pelagornis Mlocaenus was first seen in the early Miocene epoch.
A large water bird that resembles a giant seagull that is typically seen floating in the water bobbing for fish may be in either shallow or deep waters.
It is typically found near coast lines or beaches paddling, to rest its wings or searching for its next meal.
By far the Pelagornis is relatively calm, but easily spooked by any aggression towards it, making it flee from the area.
The ability to traverse air, sea and land makes it a versatile mount andonce tamed it gains a 36.5% speed increase which makes it one of the fastest flyers around.
The much larger ancestor of coastal waterbirds, the Pelagornis shares many traits with its modern brethren often spends most of its time in the water catching its fill of fish.
Rarely seen in the mainland, this creature is usually found along the coastlines and beaches.
Perhaps due to its young existence it is comfortable being out in the open areas of beaches weary but not bothered by the predators since it can easily get away.
When the pelagornis is domesticated it provides the tribe a versatile means to explore what the terrain has to offer.
