|Behind the Scenes|
Aecytosaur is an enemy in Chrono Trigger, appearing in the year 600 A.D.
It appears in the island of Giant's Claw during the Middle Ages. Aectyosaurs share the same sprites as terasaurs. Bulky and rotund, these dinosaur-like creatures sport green-colored skin and with yellow chests and bellies. Their head is narrow and their eyes are at the sides, similar to a bird or reptile. Their nose is pointy with a brown tip. Additionally, on either side of their head brown-tipped ears, resembling those of a feline. At their backs are two small wings and a big, heavy tail. Ironically, these wings would be incapable of lifting their massive weight in flight.
Aecyto-, in the name, is an adaptation of the Latin prefix Alecto- which refers to dinosaurs with horns. While -Saur is the Latin suffix for lizard.
