Chronicles of Ascension
Dicarn are aggressive, very fast, and attack without provocation because they are always hungry. They are generally solitary and have no natural predators. They will eat anything that is even slightly meaty, including other dicarn.
Dicarns burrow in snow, reaching up with long mouth tentacles to grab unsuspecting prey which is then torn apart, so as to stuff the pieces into their small, toothy mouths.
They can only be seen in the ultraviolet spectrum, but are reported to have long (15 feet is average) white furred snake-like bodies and 6 legs.
