Gibtas Spawn Swarm

When a gibtas gorges itself on an incredible amount of flesh, it vomits up a pool of acid filled with tiny pink egg sacs that burst immediately. The new babies hunt as a pack, growing in size until they go their separate ways or consume each other.

Gibtas

Source Pathfinder #164: Hands of the Devil pg. 80
This rubbery, spheroid scavenger is nearly all acid-dripping mouth, with five bulbous black eyes and two powerful, gangly legs. A gibtas often forms a bond with a single other creature—usually, a more powerful aberration— and serves this master loyally, if erratically. Creatures who keep a gibtas as a pet or guard soon learn to keep it away from any important possessions they don't want spattered with acid.

Sidebar - Advice and Rules Gibtas Companions

A gibtas can make for an unusual animal companion, with the GM's permission. Use the statistics for a bear animal companion, except the companion has the rare trait, is an aberration rather than an animal, has darkvision rather than low-light vision, and gains the gibtas bounder's Bouncing Slam as an advanced maneuver instead of Bear Hug.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Wild Gibtases

In the wild, gibtases are scavenger creatures, avoiding much larger and more powerful predators while feeding off abandoned scraps. This limits their consumption-based reproduction. By spawning hundreds of offspring at once during times of plentiful food, they ensure the propagation of their species only during times of plenty.
