Giant Artillery Beetle

The corrosive power of the giant artillery beetle’s acid is famous among the crystal grove. Its properties melt stone, but not metal and as a result, the acid is commonly used in the retrieving of precious materials by the Agrr tribe.

Acid Sack

The giant artillery beetle’s acid sack does not actually provide its acid, rather its resistance. The sack creates a slimy substance that is secreted through the skin which nullifies acidic components. The creature’s crystal diet caused its stomach to produce overly strong acid to melt the crystal. It regurgitates its stomach content in a quick fashion, which replenishes itself after a short while.

Bad Vision

Due to overuse of their corrosive spray, most Giant Artillery Beetles suffer from damaged eyes, resulting in a lower alertness to danger. It is easy to sneak up onto these beasts.

Giant Assassin Bug

The giant assassin bug feeds on the liquified insides of its prey. It uses special venom to dissolve their prey’s innards, which they suck up with their elongated mouth.

Piercing Mouth

The mouth of the giant assassin bug is perched on long strawlike appendage on its face. the creature pierces its prey’s skin with and becomes stuck. The giant assassin bug sucks the creature dry until its dead. Many try to disconnect assassin bug from their skin, but the hooklike appendages on the outside make that job easier said than done.

Cloaked in Death

The giant assassin bug improves its hiding by using appendages of its prey and other natural resources to improve its hiding. Most hide by covering itself in dust, leaves or sand.

Hard to Tame

Because of their intelligence, these creatures generally prefer safe environments when they do not feed. Although these creatures are not especially hard to tame, they are only mobile when they experience hunger. In this state, they only engage creatures for the prospects of food, and thus have cost the life of many Spoak tribemembers.
