     Dire Reds are giant mutant red squirrels found only in the largest forested areas. They are not skittish like their smaller brethren and are not opposed to feasting on humanoid flesh should the opportunity arise. Given their sense of smell they are hard to surprise but skillful hunters (such as the ones pictured above) can ambush them on occasion if they stay down wind. Heaven help them though should the winds shift in the Dire Reds favor. After killing their prey they will often drag it back to their nest to devour at their leisure. Their lair is often a hollowed out massive hole in the largest of trees to be found in the area. Within their nests one can find any treasures their previous victims may have possessed.

I found this picture on the internet and just couldn't resist stating the beastie up! -B
