Monstrous Scallipses only comes out during the night,
It's so viscous, mighty and dangerous to fight.
Had any legend or brave ever told its tale,
There was only one survivor who returned so frail.
It had numerous perceptive eyes dotted around the head,
Two enormous fangs from where poison is spread.
It's always on the watch, its nose is active too,
Not to mention its ears that hear the tap of shoes!
Its body is full of scales, thorns and fur,
This monster is quiet, and barely makes a purr.
It has seven arms in total, with 2 fingers in each,
Ten miniature legs which are barely of reach!
Beware, beware, don't go off wandering at night,
Watch out for the Monstrous and its viscous bite!
It lives in the forests, but its habitats are unknown,
That is because it is huge and is extremely outgrown.
It has special powers that help it to survive.
Camouflage and strength is what it uses to thrive.
There are only five of them left out in the wild,
You better be serious, don't take it so mild.
Beware, beware, I am warning you again,
Whether you kill it or live with the pain.
If you have a brave amongst you, join the battle wing.
Whoever kills the beast tomorrow, will become our king.
