Giants of Xibalba by Hyrotrioskjan Giants of Xibalba by Hyrotrioskjan
There is nothing what a Maggot seal fears more than the sharp pseudo-jaws of an adult Diblocongri prodigiosus.
Dubiobrachids are inhabitants of the upper water layers (between 100 and 0 meter). They are fast, very well armed and intelligent enough to surprise even the most vigilant herbivore. Their boby is covered with electric receptors, a sensitive lateral line system and heat sensors. Diablocongri have one of the longest spines and is the longest animal of Silvanus. Normally the beast swim slowly through the underwater vegetation and search for prey with it's shark like smelling system. When near enough it uses mainly it's lateral organ and the electric receptors. Acisculaqueus stromeri is a close relative which prefer hard shelled prey which is often hidden under mud.

Probably a tiger, or some other solitary predator.

Diablocongri is intelligent? What would be a good equivalent to compare it to, to see how intelligent it is?

Looks like an elasmosaur! It also reminds me of a marine alien I once created, that looked like a jet-propelled pliosaur, but enormous, absolutely enormous...

I could see these more as an ambush predator than a hunter. Pulling their long necks back, and can sit still for hours on end, until a fish or other source of food comes close enough, in a second it can thrust it's neck out, like a spring it grabs hold of the prey and devours it whole

And some relative perhaps , could hunt like a venus flytrap/crocodile hybrid.:D The "mouth" is hidden on the ground among vegetation, while the rest lurks underwater. when prey touches the jaws they close and whole creature reatreats into water.:D
