Shadow of the Demon Lord: Carrion Crawler

Carrion crawlers live underground, but will sometimes go to the surface for food. They are akin in appearance to a 3-to-4-foot-long centipede. A carrion crawler possesses eight long tentacles protruding from the sides of its head, which allow it to stun its prey. The creature eats carrion, but it is known to kill live prey.
