When a 1,500 pound owlbear rears up on its hind legs in a fighting stance, it stands close to 10 feet tall. Its thick hide is covered with a mixed coat of brown, black, and gray fur and feathers. Each of the creature’s massive paws ends in claws sharp enough to disembowel an unarmored foe with a single swipe. Its body looks like that of a large bear, but its head has the appearance a giant owl’s. Like an owl, the owlbear can extend its neck and turn its head more than 180degrees to seek prey.
