Creature Name: Greater Ithrak
The Greater Ithrak is another Sheegoth-Like creature. It has large and powerful legs that can allow it to jump a few meters. The tail of the Ithrak can allow it to cling to a wall until it senses prey nearby. When the creatures release the holding mechanism on their tail they can fall a considerable distance. The legs take the brunt of this fall so the Ithrak can automatically attack the creature it sensed.
The Greater Ithrak has very large and powerful mandibles. After it drops from its perch it will jump at the creature biting at it. Normally a creature will be killed or severely injured from this attack. After the creature finally dies the Ithrak sniffs it out trying to find whatever it was. When it does the Ithrak sweeps it up in its powerful jaws and swallows the creature whole. Greater and Lesser Ithraks both mate through sexual reproduction. Greater Ithraks are so rare because there aren’t many in one area and they can’t find a mate.
The Greater Ithraks main advantage over a Lesser Ithrak is the creatures’ harder shell. Most attacks fly off the creature except on the back. Its back has a surprisingly small amount of protection so the Greater Ithraks only venerable point is its back. Any other attacks have no effect whatsoever. Greater Ithraks are only found on two places on the Alimbic Cluster while the lesser Ithrak is found on three.
