This illustration is from my Kickstarter project to create drawings of all of the friendly nonhumans and land animals from Professor M.A.R. Barker's wonderful Tékumel (aka Empire of the Petal Throne) role-playing world setting.
"These hairy, six-legged creatures build underground dens covered with a thin layer of grass or sod, and from these they leap out upon passing travellers. They have slender, rod-like antenna and a barbed, prehensile tongue, with which they attempt to carry their victim down into their lair and feed upon him at their leisure. There is only a small chance that they will attack parties of more then 6 persons; otherwise they remain hidden. They collect bright and glittering objects and thus may have some treasure in their lair."
