In the high foliage surrounding the nearby swamps of Ecor-117 lurks a predator that methodically hunts its prey. With the ability to stand perfectly still for days, this creature will slowly surround an area frequented by other animals. Armed with pincers, grab hooks, camouflage, and a poisonous sting that can instantly paralyze, it will attack with ferocity and without warning. Scientists stay clear of these swamps so that the natural order of things is not disturbed.
