Mountain Banshee (Ikran in Na'vi) is an airborne predator who lives in mountainous territory on Pandora. Na'vi
warriors attempt to bond with a Banshee, a dangerous and required rite of passage. They are cousins to the Great
Leonopteryx and they are scientifically known by Xenobiologists as Pterodactylus giganteus. A Banshee bonds to a
Na'vi warrior for life. They are four-winged creatures that, like the Leonopteryx and Direhorse, have a
biologically produced carbon fiber flexing on the skin. Movie AVATAR.
