A Skalenzahne (pronunciation: SKAA-lin-tsaa-nuh; Germ. sg. Skala pl. Skalen "scales" + Zähne "teeth") is a crocodile-like Wesen. They are commonly imprisoned by Löwen to fight to the death in gladiator combat for their pleasure and a purse.
Typically, these creatures exist peacefully among the human population, but they can become barbaric when introduced to the taste of human or Wesen flesh. In this state they will savagely kill all, even their friends. Once entering this state, they become incredibly carnivorous, devouring meat like a starved animal, regardless of what sort of meat it is.
Like many other reptilian Wesen, Skalenzhane have a severe woge. They grow reptilian scales over their body, however, theirs are much more crocodile-like. Depending on the lighting, they range from a greenish yellow, to a yellowy brown. They loose their hair, and their ears, which are replaced by two holes, one either side of their head, and gain a short snout, containing razor sharp teeth which they can use to rip their food to pieces. Their scales go over their whole body. They also gain sharp reptilian claws, which can casually rip humans to pieces.
They are incredibly strong and durable creatures having thick crocodile-like skin, and are described as having no weaknesses. They are at least as strong as Blutbaden, and one was able to briefly fight a Grimm on equal ground. They are described by a Löwen as being natural fighters. They also heal a lot faster, and can take much more serious wounds than humans can. During the fights Dimitri was in during "Last Grimm Standing", he was seriously wounded and lost a lot of blood several times, but was fighting again within a few days.
- The name, which was probably supposed to be "scale teeth," is incorrect German. "Skala" refers only to a measuring scale; an animal scale is "Schuppe" in German. Additionally, the plural of "Zahn" (tooth) is "Zähne," not "Zahne."
