Sand Rippers are sand-dwelling predators that reside in the Khoros desert. They can "swim" through the sand and jump outside it for hunting. They are the natural predator of the Tetramand.

Appearance

They are bulky olive green creatures with a distinctive row of spines reaching from their heads to the bases of their necks. There is a single large spike on the tops of the heads and an even larger one on their backs, somewhat like a dorsal fin. They have wide gills along the bottoms of their necks, as well as narrow red eyes and prominent teeth that are visible even when their mouths are closed.

Powers and Abilities

  • Swim through sand
  • Powerful jaws
Sand Rippers can swim through the sands, and have protective membranes to shield their eyes so that they can "see" in the sand. They also detect loud movements above them and can launch themselves out of the sand to ambush their prey. They have jaws powerful enough to break the toughest metals, such as the Proto-TRUK's wing and Kevin's car.

Weaknesses

They can't swim through rocky land.

Trivia

  • They are based on sand sharks and Mosasaurs, which are prehistoric marine reptiles.
  • They also share traits with the Graboids from the Tremors film series. Both hunt underground, detect loud movements, and ambush prey.
