The deadly sporebats are a more highly evolved sub-species of the spore walkers. Like their walker cousins, the sporebats draw ingredients from the environment and combine them to form virulent toxins used in subduing the sporebats' prey. Unlike the walkers, however, the sporebats have the added advantage of flight in their arsenal. No corner of Zangarmarsh is safe as long as these silently gliding death-dealers are on the prowl.
Sporebats are usually docile, but when they attack, their stingers wrap around exposed limbs and can even tear through reinforced leather like it is paper. This is because the entirety of their long, whip-like tentacles are barbed. When some species of sporebat collapse, they release a series of spores which affects a variety of species and provides a short-term buff of considerable power.
Wild sporebats are vicious creatures, but if tamed at a young age, they can be loyal companions.
