    See that bush over there?'s not a bush. Go ahead, pick those berries. I'm not paying your medical bills...

    Fruzzbites are creatures of the more colder biomes, sporting the uncanny appearance of berry bush. What this illusion hides is the brutal fangs hidden under that leafy moustache. What makes this worse is the fact that the fangs are made of solid ice. Talk about a chilling bite, eh? The 'leaves' on the body are actually a layer of fur well adapted for the cold weather Fruzzbites thrive in.

    The metabolism rates of a Fruzzbite are fairly low, meaning they can wait days on end for a meal if necessary. Masters of patience, snowfall often collects on the top of their heads while they wait for unwary herbivores to try and snack on their 'leaves'. This only adds more to the illusion that the creature resembles an actual bush. The berries hanging on their sides like ornaments are not for consumption, nor did they grow there. Fruzzbites are strictly carnivorous, and only collect these berries from surrounding plants to use as bait. How they managed to do so without any visible limbs is a mystery on its own merit.

    So, how does one avoid the jaws of a starved Fruzzbite? Simple. While exploring the cold tundra, watch the bushes carefully. While Fruzzbites are masters of disguise, they have one fatal design error: Their teeth. Their fuzzy moustaches can only cover so much, as these icicle-like teeth are a dead giveaway. As such, ranged combat is the best way to avoid any confrontations with these monsters. Their teeth is surprisingly durable, comparable to the characteristics of permafrost. These teeth can be used for some ice-based weaponry, or if you're a practical joker, extremely cold ice cubes. The leafy fur is actually a great material for winter gear, protecting the wearer from the cold weather. Now the only question remains...did you pick the right bush?

    I like the sprite and the idea, They also seem kind of cute. Maybe if you kill one, since the berry's are real, you get berries anyway, plus anything the mob might drop.
  17. All I hear is the snover call going "Ijiwij!" over and over in my head.
    You've made so many of these awesome things, I would really like to know if the devs are going to put some in!
