These small spider-like creatures go by several names—walltulas, skullwalltulas, pygma skulltulas—but they are simply small skulltulas. A walltula has usually just not grown to adulthood, but can also be the result of stunted growth. Much like their greater counterparts, they have a hide resembling a humanoid skull, but it lacks the armor-like rigidity for which skulltulas are known.

Due to its relative lack of size and strength, a walltula usually relies more on ambushing or foraging than actively hunting. Any one is still unusually clever compared to a mere beast. They are well-known for tackling humanoid climbers off trees or cliffs, letting the victim fall to its death, and then feasting on the fresh corpse.
