Concept: Humoncules Tres
this ruthless killer lurks inside caves and underground passage ways, dragging himself forward with his massive muscular shoulders. his tail is his main weapon of choice since it's bulk prevents his upper body from moving fast. his most obvious mouth is used to makes bellowing hissing sounds so that all your attention is focussed on his upper body.
the mouth on the tail is not a real mouth but a rockhard bony structure that resembles it. The tongue is the actual tip of the tail and is used as another tool of distraction. (somewhat like the red fluffy things on shaolin spears)
when grabbing on to his victim with his tail this powerfull contortionist starts crushing his victims leaving them barely alive so they can still feel the pain of giant pincers and razorsharp claws while they rend through their flesh.
Concept: lurking screamer
in the dense forests of minnesota the screamer lies waiting for its unsuspecting prey. the echoing scream is the last thing its quarry hears.....
with its big front jaws it attacks and mangles its prey then the screamer picks it up with it's spiked appendixes and raises it to his head to feed
Concept: Snow monster of Minnesota
Minnesota Snow Monster uses echolocation to gain food. Center head by screeching can make specific sound waves.
The ears of the other two heads are sharply tuned to a receice echo of this screech. Then their brains and auditory nervous systems can produce detailed images of the surroundings. First of these heads attacking with fangs, then the second head with greater jaw and two row of sharp teeth eats the prey.
It feeds on wolves, mooses, bears and other residents of Minnesota.

Its outer month is used as a weapon but doubles as extra protection to the head when closed. The head is the most venerable part of the animal only fully show to taunt and to eat. Commination is done through a separate mouth above the head designed to call out over large distances.
Concept: The Bellowing Death-Harbinger
The bellowing Death dealer is named as such for the use of one of it's many mouths. Bellows upon it's back allow vast amount of air to be channeled and focused through the slit-like mouth on it's neck. When it's bellows are heard across the vast Minnesotan plains death is a certainty for either the people nearby or their livestock. It efficiently kills at tears apart it's prey using it's many jaw mandibles on it's main head before letting the lapping tongues dangle from the third mouth situated on it's chest, leaving it time to search for it's next prey and bellow it's soul curdling drone once more.

Concept: Hairy Digger
The Digger buries himself among the rocks and only exposes the top of its nose which looks like a rock too. Normally spends long periods dormant until the mating period, when it smells the female pheromones in the air, and then it comes out very hungry and active, looking for the female and attacking any animal or human that crosses its way.

Concept: Tre Gojė of Minnesota
The Tre Gojė is North America's most dangerous omnivore.
Concept: The Mouthy B*stard
The Mouthy B*stard roams the mountain regions of Minnesota, and in the scarce winter months is known to eat plants, animals and even the odd person in order to survive. It has a mouth to feed that is practically a slit in it's throat with teeth, which enables it to eat while keeping its larger, more threatening mouth in full view to scare off any predators. A beak-like mouth sits atop it's head and is often heard mimicking the mating-calls of other animals that are lured too close to the beast and are set upon with its ferocious jaws. The animal also has 3 sets of eyes with each pair able to work independently from others ensuring constant vigilance.
Often joked about as the b*stard offspring of a lion, a hammerhead shark and possibly Sloth from the 'Goonies', The Mouthy B*stard has a face not even it's mother could love and a temperament to match.

Concept: The mouthy monster
This dangerous beast relies heavily on its smell and touch as its main functions. Its strange horn head carries its vocal cords and nose which allow it to give of a eerie rumbling sound, often used to scare of predators and for mating. Hearing the sound is ofen a call for alarm and panic as an encounter with one of these beast can be extemely dangerous, with its lightning quick tail as a weapon and its huge toothed mouth to digest almost anything which comes across its path.

Concept: The Many Mouthed Monster of Minnesota
Shambling through the forest chirping like a songbird through the beak on it's snout, the dog-bear creature uses sonar to supplement it's poor eyesight. It screeches loudly when confronted, the piercing echo providing several seconds of hyper-clear vision. The oversized teeth in the large center mouth are as much for intimidation as combat. The lower mouth opens directly into the throat, where it dumps all manner of food--including it's victims.
Concept: Gray Muncher
Roughly the size of a rhino, the gray muncher feeds exclusivly on small prey. It is know for it's three mouths and it's high pitched shriek which can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours due to an unusual adaptation that makes pausing for a breath unnecessary - an air intake valve near the vocal opening that completely bypasses it's respiratory system, continuously filling a series of smaller pressurized air bladders. This sound both immobilizes small animals, and wards off would-be predators.
Upon approaching it's victim the gray muncher extends a long, sticky, prehensile tongue. The tongue wraps around the animal, which is then shredded into more manageable chunks by the razor sharp teeth of it's powerful lower jaw. Finally, these smaller chunks are lifted into the upper mouth for consumption.
