Description (Initial Observations): These domestic cat sized giant flying locusts travel in swarms of 20-50 prefering to eat crops and plants

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: in extreme circumstances they have been known to attack humans and mutants alike strip-ping the poor victims to the bone of flesh. They do two attacks, a bite for 1-2 (1d6/3) points of damage, and can throw 2-5 dagger sized spines 1x per week up to a distance of 6 meters. The normally use the spines attacking en masse to cut down vegetation and mutated plants. Once a year, in the springtime the Locus will swarm to form new hives.
