This grim looking hunter has a spiny back with blade-like horns running down the length of its spine and spurs on its tibias. Its long tapering hooves allow it to dig into the ground to gain a good grip to break into a very rapid sprint at any moment. The cuttler has a hard leather mussel and a wide mouth with lacerating teeth which it uses to latch onto its prey while stabbing it with its horny punch situated on the underside of its thorax. Lives mainly in forest and desert lands, though specimens have been reported in jungle areas.
