"That's a Big Chicken"

This large Acid Monger has sharp teeth and reeks of stink. He has two antennas near his mouth that is oozing acidic slime on a small horse, melting its flesh. This monger stands around 5 feet tall, and would be a threat to any human it came into contact with. The large spikey shell on his back helps him protect himself from other predators.

The Ravenous Acid Monger is the largest of the Mongers on Turrim, and can commonly be found in dark forests. Their eyestalks help them see in all directions, and can help them see around trees while hidden. They are also poached for their large shell and to harvest their acid for ill-intent. Hunters should be weary taht these beasts can spit their acidic slime up to 30 feet.
