A giant insect mainly seen in areas with lava activity. They are known to be resilient to extreme heat. In fact, they not only survive submerged within magma, but they can also lay their eggs there, too. They usually resort to careful means of capturing their prey by setting up traps around its nest, waiting in patience for its prey to get caught. But if starving, they become very vicious, and will act recklessly by jumping any prey it finds, and will even toss their very own eggs doused in flames at its prey.
