"Albino legs thrust its turgid thorax through the air."
"A gigantic mantis, the salthopper's mandibles work constantly, chewing the regurgitated remains of its last meals." - old description
An unusually dangerous insect, typically encountered in Desert Canyons. Can be a real danger to low level characters traveling to the starter dungeons.
When butchered, salthopper corpses yield salthopper chips and, occasionally, salthopper mandibles if the player has master butchery.
