The arnaut bush is a five-foot-tall bush with thick, supple branches, sparse leaves, and small flowering buds that are midnight blue in color. Six-inch-long thorns are spread across its branches and are revealed upon closer examination. The trunk of the arnaut bush is blackish-blue and hides the creature’s mouth. When the arnaut bush slays a foe, the trunk splits open and a 10-foot-long tendril emerges to drag the prey into its mouth. The tendril is too weak to be effective in combat. The bush moves by uprooting itself and sliding along the ground.
