A subspecies of Ochu, this giant monster freely flails around its long tentacles. It is thought to be relatively intelligent, which each of its feeling arms capable of carrying out a different function. Despite being a plant monster, it can be found from very cold to very hot and dry areas. It is highly adaptable, and since it is able to produce its own nutrients and water it can easily survive in areas where prey is scarce.
