- This page is about the animal Jhereg. For the House of the Jhereg, see Jhereg. For the book, see Jhereg (book).
A winged reptile, capable of hunting but preferring to scavenge ("Jhereg feeds on others' kills"). From the side their wings look like triangles, and from the front they look like walls placed too close together around a snake-like head. Unlike most depictions on the books, they have a pair of wings and one pair of clawed feet (not two pair).
Jhereg have a poisonous bite that, while not always lethal, is enough to slow down a human significantly.
The Jenoine experimented on jhereg creatures prior to their destruction on Dragaera. These experiments gave the jhereg nearly human-level intelligence (despite having a brain about the size of a walnut).
