The spider-like Gantula can be found nesting in practically any secluded area that is large enough to accommodate it, ranging from abandoned buildings, dark caves, and isolated tunnels. Their disturbingly large size at full maturity (around 2.1 meters) brings a sense of discomfort to many Arkians. This fear of Gantulas makes the species a common element in countless spooky folktales throughout the ages. Around Halloween, these folktales are often shared.
Intimidating size aside, Gantulas are surprisingly timid and will rarely harm another creature if not for sustenance. The highest level of aggression in Gantulas can be observed when their pups are being threatened, a territorial dispute emerges, or when two males compete for the same mate.
The Gantula species is related to the Scorbis, with both being arachnid-like canines, although they don't appreciate the company of each other. Gantulas, however, are unusually fond of Eereek and will even co-exist together, offering both protection and food in exchange for helping build cobwebs.
