Subject: Arachnid Solifugae (Red Roman Spider)
These are carniverous Arachnids, that hunt their prey by chasing it.
It feeds on ANYTHING. It will eat mice, litte birds, basically, anything
it catches. If you feel a hard nip on your shoe at night, you have been
zapped. If you are barefoot, you hear a loud yelp and "Something Bit me"
and a little red mark/spot of blood.
It has the habbit of "chewing" patches of hair off animals and uses it for "nesting"/lair.
