Behind the Scenes
First Appearance

Flight of Passage

The nalutsa is a six-gilled behemoth that lives near the shores of the Pandoran ocean, and can be seen leaping out of the near-shore waters. The birthing and parenting behaviors of the nalutsa are similar to orcas. The nalutsa is the tamer and less elusive cousin of the akula.

Anatomy[edit | edit source]

Massive and armored with no visible dorsal fin, a single set of flippers and a long tail ending in jagged and flared flukes. A massive set of jaws that contain sword-length teeth for rending and tearing prey. Plated exoskeleton - not dissimilar to the shell of a turtle.
