Vulture Grubs are small, worm-like creatures usually found in tunnels and caves close to the surface. They can be eaten when dead, or used to summon Vultures.


Vulture Grubs have small bodies, with coloring ranging from green to beige. When dead, their colors darken. Their gray heads are rectangular and feature two bits on each side, which protrude out towards the body at an angle, alongside a darker spot in the middle that blinks yellow, green, or red while the grub is attempting to summon a Vulture.



Vulture Grubs can be held and thrown. Doing so outside with a living Vulture Grub calls down a Vulture, which may scare off smaller predators such as Lizards. Players with the skill or resources to kill the Vulture may use this to easily acquire a Vulture Mask.


Vulture Grubs can often be found dead or killed with a Spear and eaten, filling up 1 food pip 🌕. Dead Vulture Grubs are a darker green.

Abilities & Behavior

Wiggling around

Vulture Grubs are not capable of moving much on their own. They occasionally wiggle around on the ground.

Summoning Vultures

When thrown, Vulture Grubs emit a colored laser upwards. The laser starts out yellow and turns a different color after ~3 seconds to signify whether they have successfully summoned a Vulture or not.

If the laser has a clear shot at the sky in a region where Vultures spawn, the laser turns green and a Vulture is called down. Vulture Grubs may also call down a King Vulture or ✔️DLC Miros Vulture, provided they are present in the region.

If the laser is blocked by a surface, emitted in an area without any natural Vulture spawns, or emitted in a region where all Vultures are dead, the laser turns red and the Vulture Grub emits a beeping sound. No Vultures appear when this happens.

If the laser is blocked by a surface outside, the Vulture Grub may attempt to angle their body in a way that allows them to summon a Vulture. While Vultures normally ignore Vulture Grubs, summoned Vultures always kill the Vulture Grub that summoned them if there is no other visible prey in the room.


Default relationship Ignores (0.0)


  • Though they are creatures, they are placed into rooms as objects. As such, they are swallowable (when alive) and generally respawn after 7 to 10 cycles (with a lot of variations, from 1 up to 27 cycles; a live Vulture Grub in Chimney Canopy never respawns).
Calling down a King Vulture within an Echo sleep zone (Chimney Canopy)
  • Vulture Grubs are capable of calling down Vultures even in Echo sleep zones. Summoning and killing Vultures within this zone allows the player to gain a large amount of points and Vulture Masks quickly and safely, and is a tactic often utilized in scoreruns.
