Best Answer

The leonopteryx is believed to be the apex aerial predator on Pandora. It mainly feeds on other aerial creatures in the mountain regions and above forest canopies, such as forest and mountain banshees and the medusa if desperate. Occasionally one will hunt a land animal under the forest canopy, but it is not its preferred feeding area. The leonopteryx has no known predator.

The thanator is thought to be the apex land predator on Pandora, believed to be found in all forest areas and possibly even the artic regions of the moon as well. It prefers to hunt solo and at night.

What is the name of Jake Sully's dragon in the movie avatar?

It didn't have one. By the way, they were not dragons; the smaller ones with the wierd chins were called "banshees (plural)" or "ikran (plural and singular)." the bigger ones were called "great leonopteryx (singular; for plural add '-es')" or "toruk." For the the other answer from before, "Toruk Macto" was the Na'vi name for any Na'vi that rode a great leonopteryx.

Can you ride the great leonopteryx again in avatar the game?

I have completed both campaigns, RDA and Na'Vi. I have found the gunship dragon at the end of RDA Campaign but no Leonopteryx at the end of Na'Vi. Apparently if you can somehow get back to the dormant well of souls, it is still sitting where you landed it but I can't get there to find out. So far it is impossible to ride after the last mission. Hope this helps

Avatar where to find great leonopteryx?

the last level, you get to TANTALUS (TA'ANTASI), and Toruk (the great leonopteryx) will be waiting on the grass lands, you will use him to get to the well of souls through falling rocks, no walking to get there, but to get there you must find the 4 songs by finding crystals and setting them in the correct places, take them all to hometree, (which you will get to after IKNIMAYA is destroyed) and you beat the game, then you can just have fun beating all the sector chalenges to win all the places.
