NAME ORIGIN
    Scissorjaws are a reference to the massive mandibles this monster possesses. Scissors are a cutting instrument consisting of two blade that are pivoted together so that their sharp edges work one against the other. The word comes from the Latin scindere meaning "to cut". Jaws are the two bones, the mandible and the maxilla, forming the framework of the mouth. The word comes from the Old French word joue.
