- Fearsome Critters (common type)
One of the bizarre creatures recounted by the lumberjacks of North America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This beast lived in the mountains where the slope was more than a 45 degree angle. with its huge amphibian body. The Slide Rock Bolter had a large head and mouth with two small eyes. Its tail ended in a divided flipper like a dolphin’s tail. It would use this to grip to the side of the mountain and wait for its prey. When animals or people passed below it, the Slide Rock Bolter would loosen its grip and descend rapidly down the slope. With the beast’s mouth wide open it would swallow all that got in its way. Its body was so large and strong that trees in its path were broken and destroyed.
