"Do not mock the h'ueefi," I translated.
"Ha ha!" he laughed derisively. My statement had only served to fuel the man's merriment. He said, "What could be so scary about something called a Wee… AHHHH!" His sentence was cut short as many-legged death wrapped in chitin burst forth from the brackish marsh…

Nasty piece of deadly features there. The body somehow resembles a pangolin.

Thanks! For inspiration, I actually looked at photos of pangolins, crabs, lobsters, mantis shrimp and a few other random arthropods.
