Apephibians are 4' tall creatures that dwell in tropical jungles, humid forests, and mangrove swamps.  They form loose-knit tribes led by the strongest female, and are particularly aggressive during spawning season.  The more colorful an apephibian's hide, the more toxic its secretions.

The collective croaking of groups of 3 or more apephibians generates hypnotic, soporific frequencies, inducing Paralysis to all targets that fail a Saving Throw Versus Stun within a 40' radius.

Apephibians will gobble anything they can cram into their greedy mouths, and are particularly fond of plastics, power cells, and batteries.
