This mutated bamboo appears as a long-bodied, almost weaselish creature with four powerful, panther-like legs, and a long tail. They have relatively smooth, bark-like skin that ranges in coloration from green to tan or whitish-grey, covered in a thin fur of green, sword-like leaves.

Dire Bamboo hunt in packs and prefer small prey over the larger variety, because of the amount of energy required to run them down. Even then, they catch only the weak and sickly animals. They usually hunt only one large quarry per week, per pack, going without food for days at a time.

Dire Bamboo can often be found in moist woodlands and marshlands. They are often associated with Bryophytians
