General Information

These creatures lurk underground, waiting to burst out when their preys approach them. The shell that makes them almost immune to damage leaves only their mouth exposed.

Strategy

These guys lurk underground until you approach. Then they burst forth and begin to spit vile stuff on you. Semi-dangerous for melee guys, especially the larger ones that spit up a 360 degree fountain, they are pitifully easy for ranged guys. Use target lock and flick the right analog stick until you target their mouth. Fire an arrow or spell (soul light for massive damage) into their mouth directly and they should die in one hit, and give you bonus soul for a one-hit kill. A good time is when they first spit at you, since their mouth is stationary for a moment. Remember they are extremely weak to magic attacks, so even though their defense is strong, even just a few body slashes with a magic damage-dealing weapon will do them in.

If you happen to have a Greatsword of some kind, it's strong vertical slash throws a direct hit to their mouth!
