Frightful Fridays! Mashup Marathon! Duckigator

The mashup marathon has jumped its last shark and, regrettably, landed in the jaws of the duckigator. I imagine this creature would be somewhat conflicted about attacking waterfowl, if it was working off more than instinct. I'll see you again in an hour with something less "fowl."

The eyes of this creature's alligator head, set atop a duck's body, glare balefully.

Special Abilities
Alchemical Resistance (Ex)
A duckigator gains a +4 racial bonus to its Armor Class when targeted by alchemical attacks.

A merging of two foul-tempered animals resulted in even more foul-tempered duckigators. The creatures happen to be trainable, requiring a lot of work and patience. Usually, they accompany like-minded druids and rangers in their attacks and hunts. Duckigators are unwieldy fliers, but they make up for that somewhat with their resilience to alchemical compounds thanks to the mixture of oils found in waterfowl and hide possessed by crocodiles.
