Weekly What the Heck

Welcome to the thirty-third installment of my regular feature here at the Near TPK. With continuing apologies to one of my favorite blogs, the Daily WTF, I present... The Weekly What The Heck.

Each Saturday at 10 AM Central Time I'll post one of Jen's drawings of some kind of whacked-out creature, and ask my readers: "What the heck IS that?"

I hope my readers will approach the challenge in the spirit of "Yes, and ..." - building on previous responses so everyone's ideas can be used in the final writeup. Comments are now closed on last week's entry, and I hope to have the final writeup posted tonight. Comments will be accepted on this week's entry until I post next week's entry.

So... What the heck is that? What should it do? How does it see?

It's got acid for blood and it gestates inside a human host!

...Okay, one out of two isn't bad.

Wow, I can just picture it gestating inside a cave dwelling humanoid flesh sack. In its primary stages, the humanoid could have a few reptilian traits and grow a tail. In the secondary stage, the rampant could definitely look like a separate organism from the host, almost like the middle of the creature being green and scaled and disfiguring the trunk and head of the person, while the fleshy arms and legs atrophy. The final stage could be when the eyeless rampant sheds/acid burns off its once human exterior and starts slithering around.
