Super Predators

Super predators are a relatively new classification of fauna developed as a result of growing collaberation between xenobiologists throughout the galaxy. While most species will never have encountered a super predator until the colonisation of alien worlds, some races have encountered them even on their homeworld. The definition is a somewhat vague one, and some scientists argue that it is an unnecessary one. However, the label remains popular amongst colonisation officials as gauge of the danger of local wildlife.

In general, a super predator is almost invariably an apex predator, near perfectly adapted to its local environment, and top of the local chain. However, super predators are a step beyond usual apex predators. They typically show enhanced intelligence, suprising levels of adaptability to environments outside of their own, and often possess phsyical characteristics or abilities which pose a threat to even modern or armour, or make them resistant to many modern weapons.
