Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
It is rumored that
the ferocious
warning markings
on its belly
differ from area
to area.
The frightening
patterns on its
belly have been
studied. Six
variations have
been confirmed.
Transfixing prey
with the face-like
pattern on its
belly, it binds
and poisons the
frightened victim.
With a very venge-
ful nature, it
won't give up the
chase, no matter
how far, once it
targets its prey.
To intimidate
foes, it spreads
its chest wide and
makes eerie sounds
by expelling air
from its mouth.
