|Type||elephant slug, dart slug|
|A small invertebrate. It hunts prey considerably larger than itself by firing chitinous darts, using a concealed air bladder to launch them with remarkable range and power.|
Dart slugs are a common nuisance for the first few Dungeon levels. They have reasonably damaging ranged attack, especially when encountered early, but are otherwise fairly unremarkable.

Tips & Tricks
- They'll constantly shoot at you as long as you are in their LOS, so crush them quickly. They are quite fragile, at least, so killing them isn't difficult.
- As with any monster with ranged attacks, ducking around a corner and waiting for them to come to you will reduce the amount of damage you take.
