Barbed Thermotropic Vine

Barbed Thermotropic Vines are a Tyranid plant species. They spawn from the vast clouds of spores that Tyranids plant during the beginning stages of a planetary harvesting.[1]

Their non-Tyranid variation - Thermotropic Vine grows on cold planets where heat is valuable recource. They adapted to it by sending tendrils to any warm object, seizing it and growing rapidly around it to create another clump of vine. Actually vines don't kill their victim, but prevent it from moving, slowly leaching out its warmth.[2]
