Appearing as a 10-foot-long cockroach with tentacles instead of antennae, the iron eater is a creature that derives most of its sustenance from metal objects.

Much like its cousin in the same taxonomic family, the rust monster, the iron eater will voraciously eat any iron-based equipment that it can get its hands on, though unlike its cousin, it will also eat some wood, fabric, and precious metals in order to get a more balanced set of nutrients.

Unlike its cousin, the average rust monster is afraid of the typical humanoid and will avoid combat if sufficiently threatened, preferring instead to consume unattended materials.  It is generally cowardly and non-aggressive.
