Weedlings are mutated carnivorous plants found in the American Southwest.
Created by the Nursery, Weedlings are essentially mobile plant children who are angry at their state of being. They could be found around the Mesa Verde area, created as a result of the radioactive waste used to fertilize the crops, and being a general nuisance for those who dwell there.
As unassuming as they look, Weedlings are naturally curious, and will walk up to new creatures without attacking. However, they occasionally will perceive some unintended threat from a creature and an entire pack of them will go into a frenzy, requiring travelers to decide if they want to be patient or rush through.
