The Crimson Splitjaw (Benikuchinawa ベニクチナワ) is a giant, elongated, legless, carnivorous, scarlet red reptile of the serpent species that lives primarily in the 3rd layer's steep cliffs.
By spreading its hood it is able to swiftly surf the air currents. Sometimes they might fly up to the upper layers in search of food, but it is exceedingly rare to see them in the most shallow sections of the Abyss. They have vestigial eyes and many wart-like appendages on their lower jaws.
Whether it is to harvest the nutrients, or to temper the gizzard is unknown, but they are known to habitually swallow Artifacts and minerals. There is no doubt that the sac of any of them bears treasure in great quantities, though the possibility of it being defecated cannot be crossed out either.
Crimson Splitjaws are ferocious predators that attack any Delver on sight, so their danger level is high, standing as some of the most dangerous creatures in the 3rd layer. Their meat is edible, but it's not very tasty.
