Slime Crawler, Mature

This segmented, wormlike creature has rows of caterpillar legs along its underside that cling to whatever surface it walks on. Four long, pseudopods emerge from beneath a fang-lined maw in its bulbous head and drip with some sort of venom.

The slime crawler is a disgusting creature that survives off of carrion and the leavings of others. It exists in two stages of growth that are somewhat similar — the larval slime crawler and the mature slime crawler, before finally undergoing metamorphosis to the final stage of its existence as a carrion moth.
