Gluttonous demon creatures!

River Raptors are bi-pedal reptilian creatures with round bodies and large jaws. They are omnivores and will attempt to eat crops growing in any farms that they come across, as well as any corpses. They have nests and can be mostly found in the areas of Okran's Pride & Wend.

A stronger version called Swamp Raptors can be found in Burning Forest, Raptor Island (Zone), South Wetlands and The Swamp.

There is also a rare species called the Megaraptor which is noticeably larger than a River Raptor.

Holy Nation soldiers patrolling Okran's Pride often cull River Raptors in order to protect the Holy Farms along the river. This is a good way to obtain Animal Skins.
