GANTEUS - Perentie

"In the vast deserts of central Australia life appears sparse. The desert is shocked into life by the appearance of GANTEUS roaming along the crest of a dune. Birds take off in fear, small lizards seek shelter under shrubs… An APEX Predator, GANTEUS locks his view onto his prey. He breaks into a hot pursuit, relentlessly chasing the smaller creature at high speed! His bite is potently venomous, and his meal is knocked out in one blow."
