These odd creatures are sometimes called buzzwangers by the spelunkers who encounter them in subterranean caves because of the buzzing sound they generate as they hover and fly. They cannot live in closed mineshafts, instead usually inhabiting tunnels with plenty of fresh air just slightly below ground level. While they do live in such dark environments, they are completely blind in the dark. Rather, to find prey, they rely on light sources or scents from other creatures. Thus, they are only active when other creatures near their nests. They have insect-like bodies, likening them to stirges. However, they sport leathery bat wings and large mandibles, meant to crush and bite food, rather than siphon blood.
