Mulder’s Pet

Mulder's Pet

“It’s large, round body heaving, making its white and brown fur undulate. There are patches missing from the fur, but where I would normally see exposed flesh I now see a slimy, scaly combination more representative of something on an insect. In addition to massive hind legs and small forelimbs are two lobster-like claw arms protruding from its sides. I don’t know if they were grafted or grown, but either way they look dangerous. More dangerous still is the giant, segmented tail writhing about behind it, specifically, the pointed barb at the front of it with venom dripping from the tip.”
