These silent, secretive fungoids are similar in many regards to the Mildoom, but while their greener cousins physically invade the epidermis of prey, Mustox scatter their slimy black spores in the air to germinate in the internal membranes of creatures unlucky enough to inhale them. The slimy, poisonous fungus grows rapidly in the lungs, sinuses and digestive system, continuously releasing deadly mycotoxins into the bloodstream and eventually threatening the host with suffocation. The corpse of an expired infectee will eventually sprout a new juvenile Mustox from the nostrils or other respiratory orifice.
Mustox do not float as well as Mildoom, dragging their long tendrils on the ground or employing them as crude legs.
