Description (Initial Observations): Whirrzlers are light metallic blue in color, so they are hardly visible at a distance. However, they never surprise creatures that can hear, because of the low whirring sound they make when they fly.

Reactions: Whirrzler leaves are as hard as iron and as sharp as swords; they attack by edging sideways into their opponents and slicing with several leaves at once. Whirrzlers attack creatures with AC 1 or 2 only once before flying away, since this hurts their leaves (doing l-4 hp damage to them).

Behavior: Whirrzlers are carnivorous desert plants that have developed a unique method of flight. They have no gas bags, instead rotating their flat rosettes of leaves so rapidly that they lift off like helicopters. They use this ability to settle their roots on carrion. Whirrzlers must feed fairly often; from time to time, they attack larger creatures wandering the desert.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Whirrzlers clump together while they are dormant.
