About

This creature appears as a large brown bat with razor-sharp fangs and green glowing eyes.

The mobat has a wingspan of approximately 15 feet. It is a nocturnal creature, cruising silently through the night sky in its never-ending quest for food. A mobat, like any species of normal bat, has huge ears and an upturned snout. Mobats are omnivores and often include warm-blooded prey in their diet.

A mobat attacks by biting its opponent using its razor-sharp fangs.

Surviving prey is subjected to the mobat’s stunning screech attack.
