Venusian Trappers a gigantic, magically mutated version of a carnivorous plant. It likes to surprise it's prey, and will often use surrounding plant growth to camouflage itself.

It aims to grab it's prey, paralyze it and shove it's prey into it's ever open mouth. The mouth is full of a strong acid that is used to break down it's prey into more digestible nutrients. Metal and gems are immune to this acid and will normally be excreted in 1d6 days.
