A liesurely, meandering hunter, the Gulpergeist indiscriminately ingests any source of meat it wanders across, scooping carrion or live prey alike through its unusually hinged jaws and into an expandable digestive tract capable of accomodating monsters many times the Gulpergeist's size. Stretched even to their limit, the creature's rubbery body walls are almost impenetrable, and its gastric juices the fastest acting among Ectosaurs.
Should a prey item prove exceptionally bothersome, the Gulpergeist may send its own barbed, venomous tail down its gullet, delivering a powerful natural sedative.
Gulpergeist slime is clear, cold and runny, forming bubbles that cluster together and reek of halitosis when ruptured.
The Gulpergeist is a freely roaming Ectosaur, following whatever prey catches its eye. Only when bloated with food does it stop to rest, producing gallons of waste slime as it digests its meal. Besides a noxious odor, the monster may betray its presence with its incessant hiccups and belches.
INGESTION: the Gulpergeist can swallow several times its own volume in food, imprisoning live prey in its rubbery, elastic body as they are rapidly digested.
NUMBING STING: the monster's tail quills can quickly incapacitate a living creature's nervous system.
