A spider-like creature that prowls the dark alleys of the ruined city.
About this creation
The Turantupod is a very territorial creature. It uses its spun web to catch prey and then uses its tail's multiple stingers to instantly pincushion prey. Its horrible reputation talked about by the sentient has given it the nickname of the Alley Stalker.
The paleontologists think that Attercopus developed silk-spinning spigots in order to line burrows, make homing trails and possibly to subdue prey, but were not capable of making webs because of the limited mobility of the spigots. True spiders may have arisen when the genetic information for certain appendages was “turned back on” and the spigots moved onto them. The appendages became the modern spiders’ spinnerets, which can move freely and create patterned webs.
