Anatomy

Young ones are kind of wrinkly with extra flaps of skin and a slighly soft beak, older ones have huge interlocking plates covering most of their body, a large sharp beak and heavy trunklike legs with claws sticking out of the front

Genetics and Reproduction

The Tel Na'aki are a hermaphroditic species that lays giant eggs in clutches of up to 6, each one of these beachball sized orbs having several inchs of solid armour to protect the moderately fragile young inside, regularly more than one young popping out of a single egg, an egg can take up to a year to form inside the creature but they don't need to lay the eggs strait away, individuals have been known to not lay eggs for decades at a time if a mate is not found

Growth Rate & Stages

Starting in an egg, the hatchlings bash and claw their way out a few months after the egg is layed, anything from 1 to 4 hatchlings per egg. They start off about the size of a medium dog and rapidly grow to the size of a horse, after that they then grow at a slower rate to their full size
