This creature "sneezes" its long, sticky tongue at prey. It would be quite comical except that its saliva is a very potent paralysis poison. Their habitat is caves and forests with very little sunlight. A naturalist by the name of Yorkin ti'Payne was touched on the cheek by one. He reports that he was conscious as it licked a wound into him with its abrasive tongue. Fortunately, he recovered and was able to run away before blood loss killed him.
