The Vinestrangler is a predatory insect monster profiled in "Skull Island: Archives," a featurette included on home video releases of the 2017 Legendary Pictures film Kong: Skull Island. Like the Death Jackal, Psychovulture, Sirenjaw, Magma Turtle, Swamp Locust, and Icarus Tigris, the Vinestrangler was conceptualized for the film but did not make it in. While it was among the creatures Legendary Comics would have allowed Skull Island: The Birth of Kong writer Arvid Nelson to use, he declined.
The Vinestrangler is named after its resemblance to vines and its preferred mode of attack.
The Vinestrangler is a slender insect which uses dozens of tentacles to drag prey into its massive maw.
The Vinestrangler is most active during dawn and dusk.
The Vinestrangler blends into the trees where it dwells, to the point that its Monarch profile noted that "initial findings have been inconclusive as to where the Vinestrangler ends and the tree begins."
