  • Multiattack. The giant flytrap makes four bite attacks (one for each mouth).
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10+5) piercing damage. The target is grappled (escape DC 16) and the giant flytrap uses its Engulf on it. A giant flytrap that is grappling a foe cannot attack other targets with that bite but is not otherwise hindered.
  • Engulf. The giant flytrap engulfs a Medium or smaller creature grappled by it. The engulfed target is blinded, restrained, and unable to breathe, and it must succeed on a DC 16 Constitution saving throw at the start of each of the mound’s turns or take 9 (1d8+5) bludgeoning damage and 7 (2d6) acid damage. If the giant flytrap moves, the engulfed target moves with it. The giant flytrap can have only one creature engulfed at a time per bite.


This towering plant is a mass of vines and barbs. Several stalks are horribly mobile, each ending in a set of green, toothy jaws. Whereas the smaller flytraps supplement their growth by catching insects, the giant flytrap does the same with animals, humanoids, and anything else foolish enough to draw too near. A giant flytrap’s stalks are 20 feet long, but generally sprawl relatively close to the central mass—a set of full-grown flytrap jaws is 7 feet across. A giant flytrap weighs 9,000 pounds.

Killer Flytrap. Giant flytraps are more aggressive than their smaller brethren, able to lumber slowly along to relocate to better hunting grounds. Their prey is much smarter than insects, however, and some giant flytraps have evolved to be swifter, more intelligent hunters to compensate, cannily blending in with surrounding foliage. A killer flytrap’s jaws and stalks are swift-moving—it reaches out and snaps at passersby with lightning speed. With a modicum of intelligence, a killer flytrap is capable of limited tactical choices, such as knowing when to break off an attack against a powerful foe.
