Coral crawlers are ambulatory, rhinoceros-sized, animalistic collectives of marine polyps. They hunt along the ocean floors, but surface to prowl beaches and riverbanks.

Coral crawlers are covered stinging barbs that inject a Class 7 neurotoxin.  And being made of millions of individual creatures grants them complete immunity to any and all Mental Mutations.

Aquatic tribes with thick carapaces and/or immunity to poisons tame coral crawlers as mounts.
