The Flynoceros is a legless winged mutation of the common rhinoceros (MF rulebook, page 92). Just like its notorious cousin, a Flynoceros also has an ill temper and a willingness to charge and gore intruders. A Flynoceros attacks by swooping in at its full movement rate. If a PC is butted while a Flynoceros is at full speed, he will take double damage from the attack (6d6 hit points). All other butting attacks are only 3d6 hit points of damage.

Because it has no legs, a Flynoceros spends all of its time in flight, never landing. It feeds, drinks, sleeps, and even mates while in flight. It is assumed that the Flynoceros has an increased stamina mutation allowing it to remain in flight indefinitely. If one is "grounded" during combat or by accident, it will have difficulty righting itself to take flight again, succeeding on a 1 on a 1d4 roll. If a party stumbles across a grounded Flynoceros, there will probably be others in the air protecting their fallen herdmate.

Mutations: complete wing development, increased stamina
