Monster of the Day: The graboid

Source:  Tremors
Location:  You aren't going to like this... it's under you.
Threat Assessment:  5.  A big gigantic worm with a beaked mouth filled with snapping tentacles.  The main problem is the graboid can sneak up on you since it travels by burrowing at high speeds.  Also, the ground provides it a defense against most weapons.  While not intelligent it certainly has a learning curve.
Limitations:  Doesn't like loud noises.  Animal intelligence.  Stinks.  The last is probably only a limitation to being invited to the better parties.
Personal Note:  One of my favorite beasties.  Great movie!
