Mandragora BotSL

A mandragora in Spires of Arak.

Mandragoras are strange flesh-eating plants that the botani created by infesting other living creatures such as the riverbeasts on Draenor.[1] Vindicator Maraad says that he has seen plant life mimic the vicious hydra before, but only mandragoras have been known to improve on the design.[2]

Draenei explorers have not yet determined if these multi-headed plant beasts are a natural species, or if they are created by the botani to defend their lands. These enormous, mindless creatures should only be engaged with extreme care, as each of a mandragora’s multiple heads are lined with serrated teeth, and the heads that aren’t busy chomping adventurers assault them with toxic spit or poisonous breath. Be wary of these foes when trekking through Draenor’s many overgrown jungles or bodies of stagnant water.[3]

Hulking Gnarlvine is a mandragora or mandragora-like creature found on Azeroth.
