Sandran[French title] is an enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. It is yellow with a scaly sand-like texture, resembling a cross between a lizard or a dragon (with its green back spikes) and a seal (with its two limbs, and a wide tail in place of hind limbs). Sandran attacks Kirby by spitting sand in his direction, and yields the Sand ability when inhaled.
