Crunths possess blazing red eyes, scaly legs protruding from shaggy dun-colored coats. They possess squashed faces with small mouths filled with jagged, venomous teeth. They are not very agile, but if they are able to corner their prey and deliver a bite, the poison quickly renders their hapless victim helpless. Then, as a pack, they rend the victim apart, little piece by little piece.
A thick carapace of the athrovar is ridged with bulbous knots which give it the ability to crush and grind its foes–that and its immense weight which is carried on thick, stubby legs.
These hide in the sands and their double heads strike in quick succession when someone disturbs their repose. They have a venom which is lethal to small animals. Usually, it takes several bites to kill a grown warrior—but not always. The two-headed adders who have yellow diamonds upon their heads appear to be the most venomous of their species.
Having been familiar with earthly chocolate, Garvey Dire was quite excited to taste mushroom chocolate, which is derived from a sap that seeps from a dark mushroom of a variety that grows up to five feet in height and in diameter. The mushroom chocolate was not, however, quite the same flavor as the chocolate to which Garvey was accustomed. It has a more earthy flavor more closely resembling a dark chocolate mixed with the bite of cumin. Though a bit foreign to the palate of the astronaut, it is considered a delicacy among the Muvari and is a popular item when trading with other tribes.
