Tendrils

Jen encounters a group of Tendrils on High Hill

What in the world?

Jen upon seeing a group of Tendrils[1]

Tendrils were creatures native to the Endless Forest, the hills along the Sifan Coast and the mountain ranges approaching the Castle of the Crystal. They tended to lie motionless for hours waiting for an insect or small mammal to pass and would then attack with their neurotoxic feelers, with even the smallest graze paralyzing their prey and allowing them to consume it while it still lived. Entire colonies of Tendrils would roll to new cliff faces like tumbleweeds when their food supply became scarce.[2]

Jen encountered several Tendrils as he climbed High Hill on the way to Aughra's observatory and was quite bewildered by them.[1]
