The false oasis

Describe a predator in your setting with an unusual killing method   "The water was so placid, i knew that if I was able to just reach it that I would be okay. Then I looked down and I saw that their was an impossible pile in the pool. I saw numerous coins, jewels, and metal objects. It looked almost as if someone had crashed a treasury cart into the pond. I decided that I would take care and used my empty canteen to retrieve the water. Am I glad I did. While I got my water, a Saber Raptor seemed to dive and miss a smaller bird and hit the water. The I took no note of it at first, thinking that the bird would get out. I was shocked as I had started to drink when I saw that the bird was being pulled deeper, and struggling, its feathers and other features discoloring swiftly. I backed away from the pool realizing that all I would take was the canteen of water."
The Tale of Tom Chandril
