Peluda by Ashere Peluda by Ashere
"The Peluda is a specialized species of fresh water hydra that resides in the vast swamps of france. A slow and grumpy creature, the Peluda is notable mainly for it's great venom and quilled back. It hunts in the reed beds, allowing itself to blend with the tall grass, before striking out at any creature that passes by. The peluda feeds on many small creatures of the swamp, from frogs and rats to the young of other species of hydra.
The Peluda is small, only the size of a small crocodile, but it's quills and nasty temper make it a creature to avoid. Luckily, it is a shy animal and flees from confrontation, which considering it's venom, is a good thing."

I love the Peluda. It has to my third favorite obscure monster (the first being the tripodero of American folklore). Though describing it as a kind of hydra is kinda misleading. You might confuse people by comparing it to the multi-head dragon of Greek legend.

I know. It's a criminally under-rated critter.
