White puddings are smaller, cold-adapted relatives of the black pudding, and one of the rare oozes that thrive in winter conditions. They live amid ice fl oes and coastal shelves, and hunt seals, penguins, and other creatures that inhabit pack ice. Their kills are often completely silent, since they smother and consume small prey. White puddings are voracious and do not sleep. Their most active cycle is during the night (when their lack of strong vision is less of a hindrance), but they also stalk prey during daylight hours. When prey eludes them they can survive by dissolving plant material, but this diet seems to eventually sap the creature’s reserves of some vital foodstuff.
White puddings fed nothing but wood and grasses eventually sicken and die.
White puddings attack by grabbing and squeezing their prey.
