Description (Initial Observations): The cren tosh (or "lizard fish" as it is sometimes known) is a 2 meter long fish with silvery-green scales and a relatively flat body. With its mutant shapechanging ability, it can appear as various other creatures and even operate on land for up to 24 hours at a time.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: The transformation power can only be used once every 24 hours. In the water the fish lives under the overhanging banks where it makes its nest which it lines with shiny objects. It is a vegetarian.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Cren tosh live in lakes, rivers, or steams, burrowing long tunnels into the muddy banks to use as a nest. They line their nests with shiny pebbles and objects they have collected, and lay their eggs there. They defend the nest fiercely until the eggs hatch, then the young cren tosh are left on their own.
