"Despite the bowed legs, the creature was as tall as a large man. Gray-green scaled covered its body from head to foot. Long, ape-lkie arms hung from its broad shoulders. The arms ended in webbed hands tipped with curved, needle-sharp claws. Gill-slits oscillated at the sides of its thick neck."
"Its head was a surreal amalgam of human and piscine features: a high-vaulted skull crested with a spiky fin; circular, unblinking eyes; and a wide gash of a mouth filled with pointed teeth that would not have been out of place in the jaws of a shark. Scales covered the part of its face where the nostrils of an air-breather would have been located."
