The Bat Nosed Basilhog, 'bat nosed' because these basilhogs echolocate nasally, the oversized nose is thought to serve some role in modifying and directing the echolocation call. While the nasal cavity is strictly for echolocation, the scent receptors on the top of the head are especially attuned to the smell of Ocimum basilicum. These creatures will chew through walls, human flesh and thinner layers of metal or stone to get to the plant once detected. Since they can detect the odor of basil even after it has been consumed by another animal, they are considered carnivores, and dangerous ones at that.

7.5 inch vinyl Dudebox Dude, sculpted over with epoxy, painted with polyurethane and and acrylics.
