Keen Sight and Smell. The quetzalcoatlus has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight or smell.

Light Frame. The quetzalcoatlus is considered to be a Medium animal for the purpose of determining its carrying capacity.

Iron Stomach. The quetzalcoatlus has advantage on saving throws against disease.


Multiattack. The quetzalcoatlus makes two bite attacks.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 13 (3d6 + 3) piercing damage. If the target is a Small or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 16). Until the grapple ends, the quetzalcoatlus cannot bite another target.

Swallow. The quetzalcoatlus makes a bite attack against a Small or smaller creature it has grappled and the attack hits, the target is swallowed and the grapple ends. While swallowed, the target is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the quetzalcoatlus, and it takes 7 (3d4) acid damage at the start of each of the quetzalcoatlus's turns. A quetzalcoatlus can have only one creature swallowed at a time.
If the quetzalcoatlus takes 8 damage or more on a single turn from the swallowed creature, the quetzalcoatlus must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw at the end of that turn or regurgitate the creature, which falls prone in a space within 10 feet of the quetzalcoatlus. If the quetzalcoatlus dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse by using 15 feet of movement, exiting prone.

Quetzalcoatlus is a flying reptile, of close relation to pteranodon, that reaches wingspans of 36 feet and acts as terrestrial predators, preying upon small animals though they share pteranodon's opportunism. These giraffe-sized pterosaurs also possess a toothless beak that comes to a sharp point. Another feeding behavior they have is they will steal kills from smaller predators and scavenge off of dead creatures.
