Universal Debuts New Skull Island: Reign Of Kong Creatures

For the past month, Universal Orlando has been introducing their newest attraction at Islands of Adventures, Skull Island: Reign of Kong. Creative Director Mike West has been teasing the attraction's story, trackless ride vehicles and now some of its featured creatures: Arachno-claw, Carnictis, Decarnocimex, Terapusmordax, and Vastatosaurus rex.

Arachno-claw
These carnivorous arachnids move throughout the swampy underworld of the island's dark caverns, foraging for dead or injured creatures. The six-legged scavenger uses its crab-like claws to crush its prey before feasting on the remains.

Carnictis
The giant, slug-like Carnictis lacks eyes or facial features. But its gaping, oozing mouth—ringed with sharp, jagged teeth—is a distinguishing feature that allows this slow but relentless creature to feed on dead and wounded beings that have succumbed to the wretched, murky chasms of the island.

Decarnocimex
One of the largest and most aggressive cave-dwelling inhabitants on the island, the Decarnocimex will attack anything smaller or weaker that dares to cross its path. These vicious insects tear apart their prey with their razor-sharp mandibles and two-bladed forearms.

Terapusmordax
These are the largest flying predators on the island, with wingspans up to 10 feet. They live in colonies within the island's interior caverns and are easily provoked. Spearing victims with lethal talons, they use large carnivorous fangs to penetrate anything—or anyone—caught in their jaws of death.

Vastatosaurus rex
The V. Rex is the largest, most intimidating dinosaur that roams the island's dense jungles. Despite its large, bulky head and tough leathery skin, it's an agile predator, changing direction at high speeds and ripping into its prey with razor-sharp teeth.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong opens at Universal Orlando Resort summer 2016.
