The lithe and lean floralynx (both singular and plural) stands 2'-3' tall at the shoulder, reaches nose-to-tail lengths of 7'-8' long, and weighs 150 pounds.  Ambush predators, they can be found anywhere with significant concealing vegetation:  jungles, forests, grasslands, and overgrown ruins.

Due to their markings and the flowery growths sprouting from their hides, floralynx are nigh-invisible in verdant terrain, and they will not be noticed 75% of the time by those using normal or ultraviolet vision; furthermore, they gain +1 to Initiative.  And those that fall under the thrall of a floralynx's hypnotic scent either lie down to passively await being devoured, or vigorously attack their companions.

Floralynx extracts are valued for medicinal purposes, and some jungle tribes have been rumored to domesticate the beasts as hunting companions and guards.
