Cactuar CuttingThis creature appears to be a tiny cactus having physical characteristics similar to a humanoid: two arms, two legs and dark spots on its anterior in the shape of a mouth and eyes. Its limbs protrude and bend at ninety-degree angles giving it a rigid look, which belies the speed and agility with which it can move.
