Three days ago, members of an Astrek prospecting expedition working a previously unexplored region of New Eden were attacked by an aggressive, never before seen animal. Although several expedition members were killed, the ARES pilot escorting the crew was able to subdue the animal. A remote SIN scan of the animal was performed. Read on for more information.
Name: Timber Slinger
Researcher's Observations: The Timber Slinger appears to be a derivation of a large, flightless insect, standing approximately 7 feet tall. A large sac filled with a highly flammable organic resin grows behind its head. What may once have been jumping legs have formed into powerful arms that grab and hurl this sac when the Timber Slinger is threatened. These arms are also used to strike out at anything that manages to get too close. Combat footage indicates the Timber Slinger is not highly mobile. Still, all personnel are cautioned to give it a wide berth, as it is capable of hurling its flammable resin sac at least 30 meters.
