The Sand Poacher is a Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Underground Desert biome. Similar to a Spider, it will follow and attempt to make contact with the player to attack, and is capable of climbing walls.
Note that when on walls, the Sand Poacher's speed increases drastically, making escaping more difficult for the player. Given that the entirety of the Underground Desert is covered with walls, the player should always be cautious.
- It resembles a large version of the Black Scorpion critter.
- Its name (Sand Poacher) is a reference to its only drop, the Fried Egg. Though poaching eggs is a completely different way of cooking eggs
- Desktop 1.3.5: Fixed inconsistent naming for the banner (was Ravager Scorpion Banner).
