Alien Species

This unnamed predator inhabits the few frigid water bodies which still exist in the subterranean realm underneath Newton, the deepest crater of the moon.


Its body is described as resembling a boa constrictor with the head of an octopus. It's light-grey in color and completely blind, using long feelers to locate its prey, the native Lunarians.

  • Coincidentally, this creature bears some resemblance to the Rapha and the Tzee, two aquatic predators of the moon's underground oceans which are briefly alluded to (but do not actually appear) in H. G. Wells' novel The First Men in the Moon, also from 1901.
