The Balaur (after Balaur, a dragon in Romanian mythology) is an OmnivoreOmnivore IconOmnivore type of Dinosaur with a small feathery body, proportionally sized wings, average raptor-like legs with sharp claws on its feet, and a feathery tail which is as long as its body. Although it has wings, it cannot fly; but it does have the unique ability to gracefully glide and ungracefully land. The Balaur is the first dinosaur in-game to be able to glide. It had previously been able to climb trees and then make an attempt to jump off to glide.


The Balaur's head, stomach, and tail are a base color of light pink, with dark pink feathers on its wings and back. The legs are a pinkish tan color with grey talons, and it has beautiful aqua blue colored eyes and 2 red feathers coming from its head.
