Sweet Saliva (Ex) Lepidosimian thick saliva gives a sweet scent. A creature bitten by a lepidosimian has some of that saliva sticking to it until carefully washed off. Creatures marked with sweet saliva are detected with scent at double the scent's regular range and attract attention of mindless swarms and many beasts and vermin.

Lepidosimians inhabit otherworldly jungles of green moons and strange planets. Their presence across far-away worlds suggest they were spread deliberately by an unknown force or will, though they might have migrated through interplanetary portals and rifts on their own, driven by their simian curiosity and insectile gluttony.

Lepidosimians feed on flower nectar, fruits, though they occasionally enjoy a snack of eggs and invertebrates. Like monkeys they somewhat resemble, they are curious and playful creatures, but unlike them they are eerily silent, most of the time.
