Greenvises are ambulatory vegetable horrors that stalk the fringes of some humanoid settlements. These carnivorous plants are not bold - they prefer to ambush lone prey that happens to come too near. Greenvises rest at night and actively hunt during daylight hours, repositioning themselves throughout the day if prey in a particular hunting area proves scarce.

A greenvise is a larger, sturdier version of the venus fly-trap, with a thick, green, trunk-like stem and four sturdy tendrils that hang down like vines. When the creature opens its mouth, a mottled pink maw lined with tooth-like thorns is revealed; when closed, the mouth structure resembles an ordinary leafy bush. A greenvise has small tendril-like roots that it uses to move.
