These gaunt yellow fish grow up to 2' long, have spined fins and mouths filled with needle-sharp, backward-pointing teeth.  The xantheder hunts in groups and will attack anything bleeding or flashing brightly in the water.  Xantheder can wriggle onto the shore but suffocate in 1d6+4 rounds unless they return to water deep enough to submerge in.  Xantheder flesh is dry and sulphurous, a taste rarely acquired.  Boiling a xantheder corpse in a pint of acid for an hour totally dissolves the body to make a most potent glue that only affects wood or paper.  On other substances, this glue separates once properly dried, lasting 1d4+1 minutes.  The glue is used by alchemists and scholars alike for book binding.
