The Taedium is a large, red colored, poisonous, sphere like creature with four legs and no head. It is split down the middle with each edge lined with five large spikes. Two spikes protrude from the top of its body and with no eyes or sense of smell it likely uses other methods to detect its prey such as heat detection. Capable of shooting poison darts the Taedium rarely expends the energy to chase after its prey unlike its smaller quicker moving offspring.
The Taedium is said to actually be a carnivorous plant.
