Large monstrosity, unaligned
Ankhegs are large, insect-like creatures with powerful mandibles that they use to burrow through the ground, as well as to grab and hold onto prey. They have a long, segmented body and a large, muscular thorax, and they are typically brown or green in color. They have a powerful bite, and they are known to spit acid at their enemies. Ankhegs are usually found in underground tunnels or burrows, where they hunt for food.

Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) acid damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 13). Until this grapple ends, the ankheg can bite only the grappled creature and has advantage on attack rolls to do so.

Acid Spray (Recharge 6)

The ankheg spits acid in a line that is 30 feet long and 5 feet wide, provided that it has no creature grappled. Each creature in that line must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) acid damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
