Flail Snail

By moc.liamg|nyloaf#)erewfloW( nyloaF

These are giant snails with eight-foot high shells and a mass of tentacles on their head, each of which ends in a knobby club. Their iridescent shells and tentacle clubs are rock-hard. They will chase down attackers or beings that threaten their young but are otherwise inoffensive beasts that eat lichen and algae.
