The Urstrix is a beast/urstrix-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII. It is located in the Giza Plains during the Dry and in the Dalmasca Westersand. Compared to other enemies in these areas, it is more of a threat, but should not prove too difficult.

Being the progeny of wildfowl taken into the magicite mines to ascertain the presence of noxious fumes. On occasion of a mining accident, these birds would be exposed to great quantities of Mist, under the influence of which they would at length give birth to chicks with stunted wings of a most peculiar shape. Perplexed, the hens discarded the unwanted, flightless brood, these becoming the feral urstrix.
