With the body of a buffalo, head of hog and scales covering their back for protection they can be a very intimidating presence. Their heads are constantly down and walk with a sluggish pace. Their stare and breath turns humans to stone. Though they are not as malicious as other dark entities they were still a force to be reckoned with when they were alive. As spirits they are fantastic for helping their Keeper with their focus and obtaining a goal or desire. They are capable of stopping events from happening and often do when it is in their Keeper's best interest.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Catoblepas is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Catoblepas under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel of the Catoblepas leave on top of mirror for at least 3 hours, they become subdued and submissive. Only use this technique if you feel the Catoblepas is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: Catoblepas, dark arts
