Primarily designed for tracking, the Iklik's highly sensitive and incredibly large tongue can taste individual particles in the air and locate quarry from miles away. This same remarkable appendage is densely coated in paralyzing nematocysts (stinging cells) and can extend several times the monster's body length. If its tongue is not enough to subdue its prey, it tears into the victim with its small but powerful claws.
Iklik prefer scavenging to active predation, and love to slurp the fluids, maggots and fungi from a festering carcass.
