Another Monstrous Monday!
A red-and-black striped tiger with a face that is a mass of writhing tentacles. It hunts its prey by sensing heat and movement, stalking as a prelude to pouncing. Its tentacles lash out at its prey, strangling it while its claws dig into the flesh and tear it to shreds, lapping up the blood through the hollow tips of the tentacles. The exsanguinated corpse is left for others to feed upon.

On a successful hit with the tentacle, the opponent must make a saving throw versus paralysation or are strangled for 1d6 damage per round; the victim may make another save to break free, or the tentacle can be cut (hps 5, AC 5) although there is an equal chance of hitting the victim (as per firing into melee).
Serpent Tigers can sense movement and heat within a 60’ radius, and there is a 2 in 6 chance that the beast will stop to feast on a freshly killed corpse.
