The Aranarchix is a large, scaled beast mutated from a breed of ground dwelling insect. The creatures are capable of consuming prey twice it's size. Powerful leg muscles allow the Aranarchix to leap dozens of feet into the air. True to their insect evolution they will often live in colonies, which have been known to migrate according to weather patterns and attack human settlements. Programs to exterminate the Aranarchix have so far been unsuccessful, as their breeding rates keep populations high.
