This 2-meter long mutated spider-like fungus, is a mobile plant. It's body is supported by a series of wickedly sharp spider-like legs. The main body arches up which is dominated by two very large piercing fang-like claws. Attacks from it's fang-like claws inject a corrosive poison that breaks down organic matter. A successful CON save resists the poison. A failed save reduces the victim's CON score by 1 each turn until it reaches zero upon which the victim dies and their body breaks down into an organic sludge. This sludge is what the Canthak consumes through their lower body segments.
