The Rules Cyclopedia says:
"Its small mouth is surrounded by eight tentacles, each 2' long, which can paralyze on a successful hit unless a saving throw vs. paralysis is made."
"Each of a carrion crawler's tentacles is about 2 feet long..."
Ok, I'm thinking about this 9 or 10 foot long bug with it's 8 paralyzing attacks.
Now, I'll admit that I can not remember a single instance of ever using a carrion crawler in any game I've ever run, and I think a big part of the reason is the 8 attacks it gets. I just don't see it. 2? 3? Maybe even 4 attacks, but 8?
So I'm curious, how do you run this bug? Does he get 8 attacks? Does it target multiple opponents, or does it use all 8 on a single attack?
I'm honestly considering knocking it down to 2 attacks with it's stubby little tentacles. Even still I expect it to be a pretty nasty creature.
