The Black Silt Horror is the smallest and most common of the Silt Horrors. Resembling a black, dusty octopus or squid with a writhing mass of eight barbed tentacles, the Silt Black Horror is obviously related to the other Silt Horrors. It is much smaller than other Silt Horrors and roams in groups called clutches. The Black Silt Horror aggressively hunts anything it can catch. Large clutches have attacked White Silt Horrors and wading Dessert Giants.

The Silt Drake is a migratory and solitary creature. It has no permanent lair or territory.Once a year, a male drake issues a call through the dust to any females nearby. If a female answers the call, the male and female drake mate briefly and then separate. The female lays her eggs in the deepest parts of the Sea of Silt and abandons them. A clutch consists of 3-6 eggs. They hatch after four weeks in the dust. The young drakes immediately start out in search of food. Often, the most available food is the rest of the clutch.

The horns on the silt drake’s head are sensory organs. The Silt Drake uses the horns to help it search for prey.
