Ecology: Carnictis is apparently evolved from a form of intestinal parasite. It is theorized that at some point in the distant past a large predator fell into an abyssal chasm and died. The parasites living within its gut spilled out of the corpse and into the rich organic soup found at the bottom of many of the chasms. Fed by geothermal hot-springs, the sludge was the perfect environment for the parasites, who found the pickings rich as they fed on the carcasses of animals that fell into the crevices. As time went by the worms grew to great size, until they became the "vile meat-weasel" of modern Skull Island. However, their rather unique environment limits their movements, a Carnictis who escapes an abyssal chasm and swims into the cooler rivers of Skull Island will soon die, as the lower temperature water literally sucks the life from the giant worm.
Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations. Carnictises are active predators and will attack nearly anything that strays into their territory.
Powers/Tactics: A Carnictis attacks by biting with its tooth-filled maw, latching on to a potential prey items and then literally chewing it up alive. Once attached to a victim, a Carnictis can only be forced to let go by either killing it, or driving it away with open flame or the like. As they are totally blind (and deaf), Carnictis hunts purely by vibration, so anyone who stands perfectly still (no mean feat when ten feet or more of mobile intestine is writhing about) may escape their notice.
Carnictis can stretch its "neck" out for some distance, and will often use this lunge to latch itself onto its prey. They also tend to drag captured prey into the vile sludge they call home, drowning their hapless victim as they chew their way inside.
Appearance: Carnictis has been described as a looking like an "animated stomach." They grow to be seven to thirteen feet long, with no eyes, face, or other distinguishing features (other than a ring of bristles around the head/neck). At the end of the neck is a sphincter-like mouth ringed with teeth.
Designer's Notes: Carnictis is one of the World of Kong creatures that made it into the actual film—it being the disgusting-looking worm-like creature that killed Lumpy the Cook (Andy Serkis). I used the Carrion Worm in Monsters, Minions, and Marauders to create some of the basic stats for Carnictis.
