The brown surprise is one of the many predatory "eaters" found in the steam fog forests of Nufsed. Brown surprises are master trappers. They use their large tusks to dig deep pits in the soft clay of the forest floor. They cover the pit with a mat of twigs, branches, and leaves. Then it backs into the cover of dense ferns and bushes and waits. It doesn't take long for an unsuspecting creature to stumble into the trap. Surprise! The brown surprise hop-waddles out of it's hiding place and eats.
The orange surprise has spikey orange quills along it's back and lacks the tusks of it's larger brown cousin. Instead of digging a pit, the orange surprise weaves a web of branches and vines which entangles its prey.
