Often mislabeled as spiders, these predators are unsettlingly widespread throughout the Zones and completely terrifying.
Through an unknown process, roughly 15% of any carcass within a Zone is implanted with an egg and over an unknown period of time consumes the organs of the body and sprouts eight legs from the remains. It then begins to hunt for it's next meal, where it's unfortunate victims are then attacked by a dead dog or raccoon or even a bear...with spider legs jammed through the remains.
Biologists within the Institute have noted that it's anatomy, hidden within and essentially using the carcass as an exoskeleton, is strikingly similar to a harvestmen, hence the choice of name.
