They are huge worm-like creatures of a elliptical like shape that are nearly ten feet long weighing on average over two hundred and fifty pounds. Three pairs of limbs from the dozens wriggling on the creatures abdomen robbed their victim of their freedom pulling them underground before they could scream. They also attack with spraying the enemy with a slimy like substance secreted from glands in their mouth to target their sight blinding them. Once under ground they cover their victim in a cocoon like substance to bind them. They seem to communicate with others of their kind through shrill high pitch screeches. The screams and struggling that ensues from a victim only entices its violent nature. As demonstrated by the way they went to the surface to capture other creatures the dust creepers weren't like earth bugs or stone snakes, both of which operated wholly underground. And the dust creepers’ sense of sight required light. They burrow up to the surface from their den to capture food, many times immediately eating them once they drag their victim down into their dwelling. That isn't true of people and larger meals. They like to keep them in storage as a live snack for the next time they hibernate. Dust creeper activity was generally focused in a three—mile area around their den. Down a nearly forty—five—degree incline after another 10 foot drop just before that is the heart of this den that is called "hell" by humans who have visited it in that area commonly. A person visiting it breath became ragged, assaulted by the stench of putrefying flesh mixed with something that smelled like sulfur. Proof that something there ate and excreted. They attack in a swarm any intruders into their homes, fifty or more at a time. They also aren't always prone to have just on particular group of a certain number. They are prone to sometimes connect their ends to other dust creepers further increasing their dwelling and numbers beyond just their immediate kin.
