Poison Stinger. A creature that takes damage from the canicore’s tail must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or become poisoned . It can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success.

Description

Canicores are the descendants of a long-ago magical experiment. Looking for amenable guardians, Mount Jino’s erstwhile wizard fused wyverns and large dogs. Just as talkative and far more willing to serve than manticores, they chatter constantly amongst themselves and seek out suitably powerful masters. Their bodies resemble an oversized greyhound with a long tail ending in a large stinger, and they are often found in small packs of three or four. They have small, elongated faces resembling a pixie’s and a thin membrane stretches between their limbs.

Monster Type Description

Monstrosities are magical beings usually native to the Material Plane. Some monstrosities combine the features of beasts and humanoids, like centaurs . Others have bizarre or unnatural appearances, like many-tentacled ropers . Monstrosities could only arise in a world suffused with magic.
