Description (Initial Observations): At first glance, a kai lin looks like an odd sort of reptile: a 3-meter long, sinuous body with a single pair of short, claws limbs that allow it to move, dragging its long tail behind it, a blunt, triangular head like a snake and rough, green scales. But in fact the kai lin is not an animal, but a mutant breed of plant. Its "scales" are rough bark and its "claws" a thorny pads and its "tail" is a trailing root cluster.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: This creatures bark gives complete protection from radiation. Its roots look much like a tail when in motion, when it finds carrion, it intertwines these roots in the victim and absorbs sustenance. Although it will only eat dead creatures, it is more than capable of killing prey when in need.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Kai lin aren't intelligent and have a pack-structure, cooperating for mutual survival. They reproduce by producing shoots that root into the ground and mature over the course of 6-8 weeks before uprooting and becoming adult kai lin.
