|Dungeons & Dragons creature|
In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the chuul is a large, pale yellow, lobster-like aberration with a set of nasty pincers and paralytic tentacles. They are extremely intelligent, using ambush and advanced hunting tactics to bring down prey. They live in sandy environments such as beaches and deserts, and one of their favorite tactics is to burrow underneath those for sneak attacks. They are capable of swimming, but tend to dislike it. Chuuls usually travel in pairs.
