Universal Orlando: Reign Of Kong Creatures Video

2 comments
Universal Orlando have just released the latest 'Reign Of Kong' video showing off the creatures that will be terrorising you during this awesome looking ride:




When you embark this summer at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you won’t be alone. Here you’ll come face to face with unimaginable creatures that prowl this mysterious and foreboding world.
These carnivorous arachnids from Skull Island: Reign of Kongmove throughout the swampy underworld of the island’s dark caverns, foraging for dead or injured creatures. The six-legged scavenger uses its crab-like claws to crush its prey before feasting on the remains.

The giant, slug-like Carnictis from Skull Island: Reign of Konglacks eyes or facial features. But its gaping, oozing mouth—ringed with sharp, jagged teeth—is a distinguishing feature that allows this slow but relentless creature to feed on dead and wounded beings that have succumbed to the wretched, murky chasms of the island.

SIROK Decarnocimex
DecarnocimexOne of the largest and most aggressive cave-dwelling inhabitants on the island, the Decarnocimex will attack anything smaller or weaker that dares to cross its path. These vicious insects tear apart their prey with their razor-sharp mandibles and two-bladed forearms.
These are the largest flying predators on Skull Island: Reign of Kong, with wingspans up to 10 feet. They live in colonies within the island's interior caverns and are easily provoked. Spearing victims with lethal talons, they use large carnivorous fangs to penetrate anything—or anyone—caught in their jaws of death.

The V. Rex is the largest, most intimidating dinosaur that roams Skull Island: Reign of Kong's dense jungles. Despite its large, bulky head and tough leathery skin, it’s an agile predator, changing direction at high speeds and ripping into its prey with razor-sharp teeth.
