rating: 0+x

By Tiago Hackbarth

The Plantmen inhabit the Dor Valley in the Southern pole of Barsoom. They prey on pilgrims that travel the Iss river, which end being killed by White Gorillas and Plantmen. They are the mos alien of the Barsoom species, feeding by draining the body fluids of their victims with toothed mouths on the ends of they arm-like tentacles. They reproduce by budding, growing miniature plantmen bellow their armpits. To capture their victims they jump over them, trying to hit their prey on the head with their kangaroo-like tails.
