Manticores are large, scorpion-like predators native to the planet Scarab.
Pantherine in shape, Manticores are three meters long on average. Their thick carapace is striped green and tan, with their tail a bright shade of red.
Manticore weaponry consists of two large pincers and six legs each ending in a hook-like claw. At the end of the tail is a thick, barbed stinger, capable of injecting a potent neurotoxin.
Manticores are predators, preying on a number of Scarabian creatures.
Manticores are solitary creatures by nature, congregating only to mate. For most of the year, these animals will simply stalk their prey, sometimes for miles of terrain. So far as is known, Manticores are creatures of very low intelligence.
