The caecilia is a giant, amphibious, 30 foot long, wormlike creature. Its body has the appearance of being segmented and most commonly ranges in colour from light gray to dark gray, although bluish and purplish hues have also been encountered. They are meat-eaters, burying themselves just under loose earth and turf, waiting for animals or humans to pass by. Once they are in range, the caecilia strikes with their large mouth and sharp teeth. If the victim is unable to resist, the caecilia swallows their meal whole.

Hit: 15 (2d10 + 4) piercing damage, If the attack hits and target is a Medium or smaller creature, it must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be swallowed by the caecilia. A swallowed creature is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the caecilia, and it takes 10 (3d6) acid damage at the start of each of the caecilia's turns. The caecilia can have up to two targets swallowed at a time. If the caelilia dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse using 10 feet of movement, exiting prone.
