Triple Threat: Crocoroach


Crocoroach
That's right. It's part insect, part reptile. It's all nightmare. Maybe a wizard did it. Maybe a mad scientist. It doesn't matter who did it you got to deal with it now, and really, that's just not fair. The size of a small cat, the crocoroach is a consummate omnivorous scavenger. Usually found only in swamps, jungles, and other humid terrain a single one is not much of a problem - though lots of them can result in a dangerous obstacle. Their sharp needle-like teeth are perfect for ripping and tearing. Combined with their ability to sniff out bleeding or injured targets they can quickly go from scavenger to predator - especially if they are in a large group.
