The Ammebia is a curious creature resembling a long, warty tube with a 2' mouth at one end, and a small, slime-spewing aperture at the other. The slow-moving wormlike monstrosity maneuvers about with a series of muscular contractions like a snake, halving its speed on a full stomach. If the Ammebia hits with a natural 20, its humanoid victim must save versus Paralysation at -2 or be beheaded (resurrection impossible). Otherwise, normal damage is inflicted.

A group of Ammebias can usually be found underground in dungeons, caves, or any other rocky, damp locale near other edible lifeforms. Here, they lie in wait, camouflaged by their surroundings, thus surprising unwary passers-by on a roll of 1-5 on d6.
