Eurypterids, also known as 'sea scorpions,' are giant, eight-foot-long scorpions. They are described as brown creatures with large pincers and the tail of a scorpion. Similar to how a cat would purr, eurypterids make a hissing sound when they are petted, as demonstrated by Fitz. Elves use eurypterids as a way of travel in Atlantis. They tow around silver carriages, similar to horses. The system is similar to a taxi system. Much to Fitz's amusement, Sophie was terrified of the eurypterid when she first had to ride one with Alden to visit Quinlin Sonden. This creature is part of the gorgodon hybrid used by Lady Gisela to guard Nightfall because of their stinging tails. Elwin owns a tunic patterned with eurypterids.

In Exile, Keefe mentions going to see the eurypterid races in Atlantis, in which supposedly the eurypterids sometimes get loose and "claw their way into the stands..."[1] This may or may not be true, but we do not know as there is no further information about this. :D

Quotes[]

“Fitz leaned down and stroked the shiny brown shell along the eurypterid's back. Sophie waited for the pincers to slice him in half, but the creature held still, emitting a low hissing sound, like it enjoyed being petted.”
