Vicious six-legged weasel-like animal with fur manufactured from actual gold. Beware! It is a high-level beast and is a lot more vicious than it seems, even though it's a fantastic find for AD&D people more interested in resource hoarding than adventuring."aurum" sounds like a Latin term root and it is adjusted through the Latin term for gold. "vorax" might be simply designed (though once more this has a definite Latin noise).
