“Ugh! What is that?” Gwen recoiled with a disgusted expression on her face at the sight of the creature the Rift had seen fit to gift them with. “It looks like some kind of weird fuzzy spider!”
Ianto shook his head. “Can’t be. Spiders have eight legs but this thing’s got ten.”
“It’s a Decapod,” Jack said. “Completely harmless, they’re frugivores and they live in trees. You should see them when they eat fermenting fruit. They get drunk and start tripping over their own legs, bumping into each other, and falling out of the trees.”
“I’ll pass,” Gwen said, shuddering.
A/N2: A frugivore, in case anyone doesn’t know, is a fruit-eater.
