The ravenous wagglepede is an ambush predator, laying in wait in rubble or refuse until it encounters fleshy prey. When it does detect a meal, it reveals itself and immediately begins a sinuous motion resembling a dance, waggling its long legs in waves. This hypnotic movement is so entrancing that observers must roll versus spells every round that they observe the wagglepede or become inert, able only to follow the movements of the creature. Meanwhile, the wagglepede is free to use its length to attack with a horrid bite, selecting a victim randomly each round. Observers stating they wish to avert their gaze from the wagglepede's dance attack at a -4 penalty.
The wagglepede's body is rubbery and pliant, making it resistant to blunt force trauma.
Description: The wagglepede resembles an overgrown, extremely long relative of the centipede. Its thickness is relatively small compared to its great length, perhaps three inches in diameter. The legs are very long, tapering as they approach the head, which is graced with impressive mouthparts.
