The domesticated groatch is an herbivorous, six-limbed beast that averages 3' tall and weighs 75-125 pounds.
Popular livestock thanks to their hardiness (they are immune to all known toxins and diseases), groaches are raised for their meat, wool, milk, and hides.

Wild groatches are larger (reaching heights of 4'-5' tall, and weights of 300 pounds), nastier, and more vicious than their domesticated cousins. They are omnivores in the truest sense of the word—in addition to plant and animal matter, they devour paper, resins, electronics, metal, garbage, and toxic waste. Wild groatches, too, are immune to all known poisons and diseases.
They are nocturnal, and avoid bright light (but aren't impaired by its presence).
Mutations: Increased Sense (Smell), Increased Sense (Taste), Night Vision
