False Gharials in GURPS

Tomistoma schlegelii

The false gharial is an Indonesial crocodilian with a very long and slender snout. It lives in slow moving or still fresh water, preferably with cover from plants. It will use burrows for refuge. While the narrow snout is a specialization for catching fish, it will also take a variety of other small prey animals, including mammals as large as monkeys.

False gharials can get to Giant size, but most are smaller.
