Description (Initial Observations): Mut choo are 3 to 4m diameter plants that produce their own gas, inflate, and float through the air. They float about 7m above the ground but have many mutations that allow them to satisfy their carnivorous appetites. Each mut choo is covered with throwing thorns, has manipulative vines hanging from it that are tipped with barbed leaves, and have hundreds of tiny tendrils hanging from the bottom that act as boring tendrils when the plant floats down on an unconscious victim. The mut choo will deflate itself after eating excessively, and look like a large patch of vine-like vegetation on the ground. When it wishes to hunt, it increases its metabolic rate and inflates itself, then floats away.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: This gas is especially susceptible to fire, flaming weapons, heat, lasers, pyrokinesis, etc. If more than 10 points of this kind of damage are sustained in a single turn, the mut choo explodes, causing 1d10 points of damage to all within 7m. Mut choo prefer to live in areas like jungles, forests, swamp lands, and other locales with overhanging vegetation. They are sometimes found in caves or ancient ruins.
