This creature is an amphibious type, spending most of its time near or in water. It prefers seaweed and other underwater plants as a food source. It has a wide, four-legged body, a flat, ratehr 'boomeraing, looking head, and a long snakey tail. Its front feet are webbed, with four toes each, but the back feed have fins.

It prefers seaweed and other underwater plants as a food source. The tip of the Spingral's tail excretes digestive juices very slowly, forming a sort of loose blister, which hardens to a bellet filled with digestive jusices loosely attached to the tail. The Springal, which on land, will fling tese at prey with surprinces speed and accuracy, penetrating its target with the acids. The creature dies, and the springal sucks out the creature's digested innards. Each blister, when competely forms, weighs about 0.25kg.

The springal's mouth is small, with a pair of fangs used to open a creature to reach its digested soft parts.

The creature lays soft, jelly-coated eggs.
