Good god, what is that thing in panel five? Well, it's an ant-lion. Before you groan and roll your eyes at the bad visual pun, this is an actual thing that exists in medieval folk lore. Depending on what bestiary you referred to, an ant-lion is either a large insect who hunts ants (much like a doodlebug), or the offspring of an ant and a lion. I've read a lot of strange things in mythology, but this is way way up there in wtf territory.

It gets better, as the second ant-lion described had a lion head and ant body, it only craved meat but could only digest grain. (A bit like a panda subsists on bamboo but can't digest it well, but more retarded). So the ant-lion starves to death. Though I think it's still a good deal smaller than I depicted it, but no matter.

Ant-Lion is a crime against nature. And that's why I love it.
