Monstrous scorpions are vicious predators that make unnerving scuttling noises as they speed across dungeon floors. A monstrous scorpion has a low, flat body: 2 feet long, 1 foot wide* and 1-1/2 inches high**.
*The number includes the scorpion's body and its legs; the actual body width is about a third of the total.
**The number indicates the height of the creature's body; the creature's stinger usually is held about as high off the ground as the creature is wide.
