The Devil Stalker is nonvenomous, and cannot breed.

A genetically modified version of the common trapdoor spider (Stasimopus robertsi), the BRiC (Biological Rodent Control) spider has been engineered for size, speed, diet and mobility. The BRiC is roughly the size of a puppy, and cannot stray more than a meter from its pre-constructed nest. The spider lives for one year, and will consume more than a thousand rats, mice or other small rodents in that time.

The spider weaves a silk field around its nest, which it uses to detect the presence of prey. When an animal approaches, the spider springs from its nest and kills its prey using its potent venom, dragging the prey back to its nest to devour at its leisure. Waste build-up in the spider is not excreted, leading to death from chemical build-up.

The BRiC is reccommended for largely automated agricultural facilities. All nests will be placed by trained PRAG professionals, free of charge. PRAG accepts no responsibility for personnel injured if nests are modified by unauthorized personnel.
