The Dracrocotta, also known as the Leucrotta, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It is found in the desert area of the Surface World. It is not a particularly difficult enemy to defeat when it is first encountered.
Interestingly, while many references were missed by the translation patch and corrected for the DS release, a Leucrocotta is an actual mythical beast, but the monster's name was misinterpreted as Ryu (Dragon) Crocotta.
crocotta (or corocotta, crocuta, leucrocotta, or yena), is a mythical dog-wolf of India or Ethiopia, linked to the hyena and said to be a deadly enemy of men and dogs.The
