Qula

Description

Classification
Arthropod
Size
5-6 centimetres (4 inches) body, 25-30 centimetres (12 inches) total length.
Appearance
A long body, with a feathery covering over a hard carapace. They possess six pairs of very long legs, and a pair of shorter pincered grasping appendages, used to capture and hold prey.
Sexual Dimorphism
The males of the species are considerably smaller, being about a quarter the size, but no less ferocious.
Variance
Few subspecies exist, mostly differentiated by colouration, or adaptations to a particular environment.

Ecology

Habitat
Tropical to temperate latitudes, in nearly any biome where prey can be found.
Diet
Carnivorous, generally eating insects, small lizards, birds, or mammals. Qula are known to prey on anything up to twice their size, and occasionally to attempt larger prey.

Behaviour

Social grouping
Usually solitary.
Temperament
Agressive.
Intelligence
Slight animal.
Reproduction
Females will lay a clutch of eggs and carry them tucked underneath, held by two pair of legs while moving about. After a month the eggs hatch, and the mother will release her children on recently caught prey, before moving off alone.
