A group of Jugula in the Prime Roots

A disarming squat predator with protruding eyes and powerful hind legs for leaping. The skin on its back contains short, sharp, stocky-based spines which help deter larger predators. On attack the jugular lunges up for its victim's throat latching on with its claws while sinking its fangs into the neck to drain the victim of its blood. Can be found mainly in the forests and Prime Root regions of Atys, though has been spotted in jungle areas.
