Tufty Terror

The Tufty Terror’s secret remains unknown most of the year, appearing as it does to be nothing more than a common squirrel. For several weeks every Autumn though, its head enlarges and mutates to become indistinguishable from one of the undead. At this time it also becomes highly territorial and carnivorous. The Dordogne’s inhabitants make sure to avoid where known infestations of these creatures have occurred in past years and in the weeks leading up to their re-appearance they remind one another to be on the look out - with the rather crude (but wise) advice to “Mind your nuts.”
