A muckdweller is a bipedal amphibian monster which lurks in swamps, marshes, or still mud-bottomed waters. When a victim approaches, a muckdweller will squirt a jet of muddy water into the victim's eyes to blind it while other muckdwellers clamber forth to bite their prey with their small but sharp teeth.
