The Haruspex is a species of large Tyranid. These monstrous creatures were created by the Hive Mind for the sole purpose of eating, and are deployed in the latter stages of a Tyranid invasion to consume biomass at a rapid rate. The most notable feature of the Haruspex is its long grasping tongue specifically designed to drag victims into its gaping maw, lined with writhing tentacles and fangs. Once within its three sets of jaws, a Haruspex will tear apart and quickly consume its prey organism. Such is the might of a Haruspex that it can devour an entire platoon of enemy soldiers in mere moments, while also dispatching tanks and fortifications with ease.[4]

The Haruspex is also equipped with four Crushing Claws and a set of chimneys that moderate the intense heat that builds up as the monster devours victims.[2][3]
