Entry for the Creature of the Week #63
Turpis Vegrandis Noctis
The Lurnuk is an intriguing creature. It is not really a hunter yet it stalks its prey, going largely unnoticed. They sneak up on their victim and when they catch their glance they use their large eyes to slowly hypnotize the prey. Once the prey are under the spell the Lurnuk use their tail to spit out an anesthesic gass to knock out the hapless victim. Depending on their moood, they might also use their spiked tail to knock out prey. They proceed to eat their catch, usually when it's still alive.
