Description: "Standing on three legs, this creature is a mix of dangerous jungle animals and plants fused into one deadly predator."

A tunche is a bizarre forest creature with twisted feline legs, a dense body resembling jungle undergrowth, clawed arms like those of a praying mantis, and a head resembling a cross between a monstrous spider's head and a jungle orchid.

It stands 20 feet tall and weighs 4'000 pounds.

Information: Although it has plant and animal features, a tunche is neither plant nor animal and is immune to effects that specifically target such creatures.

Considering itself the ultimate protector of the jungle, a tunche prowls its domain in search of any who might despoil this vibrant and lush environment. If a tunche encounters travelers who treat the jungle with proper respect, it might simply observe them or demand an offering in exchange for allowing them to pass through its territory.

A tunche especially enjoys toying with its victims, using its magic to confuse and mislead its opponents. A tunche rarely kills a foe without toying with it first, unless the target is actively harming plants or animals.
