    Correct Answer
    B. Jagged fangs
    Explanation
    The maw of the peryton is full of jagged fangs. This suggests that the peryton is a creature with a predatory nature, as jagged fangs are typically associated with carnivorous animals that use them to tear and rip apart their prey. Feathers or rough hair would not be expected to be found in the mouth of a creature, while sharp teeth alone could be found in a variety of animals, not necessarily indicating a predatory nature. Therefore, the presence of jagged fangs is the most plausible and logical choice for what the maw of the peryton would contain.

A flyby refers to a maneuver in which an aircraft passes closely to another object or target and then continues on its original path.
