Category; kill on sight

Another monster that I don't expect many of you will see in your lifetimes. They exist primarily in Crete, and only a few have been seen outside that place ever over the years.

I was lucky enough to catch wind of and hunt one myself, but man are they one of the biggest pains I've ever run across. Also the grossest, especially if you're not a fan of bugs and spiders.

Basically these things are human spider hybrids. Their bite turns humans into one of their own, and once they are turned they can mate and produce offspring. They also trap their victims in strong webbing and it looks like maybe keep them alive to feed on them over time, or at least the one I ran into did that.

Gunshots and fire don't hurt them, but cutting their heads off will. In fact it's the only thing I've found that does work against them. Bad when you're facing one, worse when you're facing a potential large group of them if they've started to mate.

Kill on sight, no mercy. They will bite and reproduce and kill humans and endanger any local populations for as long as they exist and that can't be allowed to happen.
