Carrion crawlers usually live underground, but will sometimes go to the surface for food.
A carrion crawler is akin in appearance to a three to four foot long centipede. The other striking aspect of a Carrion Crawler is that is possesses eight long tentacles protruding from the sides of its head, which allow it to stun its prey. As its name might suggest, it eats carrion, but it is known to kill live prey.
Carrion crawlers are of neutral alignment.
Carrion crawlers in other mediaEdit
Carrion crawlers can be found in the Dungeons and Dragons game Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, in which they play a role as an old man's companion. The player has a choice whether or not to kill the carrion crawler, to take its blood for a quest. They are also a creature in Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil.
