The alien equivalent of an Emu or Ostrich, the Velocikrayt is a large bipedal herbivore. A human would reach the Velocikrayt's chin in this image. When standing at full height a human would only reach it's hip.
The Velocikrayt's main defense is it's sheer speed, outrunning all potential predators with ease.
It's main offense is it's kick, which has the strength to cave-in a human's ribcage in a single blow.
