|Behind the Scenes|
Decarnocimexes (Flesh Removing Bug) are immense cricket-like creatures that live in the swampy chasms of Skull Island.
These abyssal chasm dwellers feed on corpses and small animals, scavenging their meals from anything they can find. Larger and more powerful than the Arachno-claw, Decarnocimex are aggressive predators, and will readily attack anything smaller than themselves.
Female Decarnocimex will cut corpses into small chunks, drag the meat to a small hole, and deposit it inside, along with a clutch of eggs, sealing the hole afterwards. The young will then hatch and subside off of the meat until large enough to break through the seal and venture out into the chasm proper.
A Decarnocimex is an immense cricket-like creature measuring anywhere from five to ten feet long. They have a heavily-plated exoskeleton, four crawling legs, and two bladed forearms. The overall coloration is greenish-brown.
Decarnocimex's were flesh-eating, oversized relatives of crickets with bladed forelimbs for tearing apart carcasses. Aggressive hunters as well as scavengers, Decarnocimexes would attack small animals unfortunate enough to fall into their hellish domain, carving them up with their claws and razor-sharp mandibles.
Adult females would drag morsels of food back to holes dug in the chasm walls, where they laid their eggs. Depositing the meat, they would seal the holes with a mucus cement. Safe within their sealed nursery, the young would hatch and live off the rotting meat until mature enough to chew their way through the plug to freedom.
