Vanarx by Monster-Man-08 Vanarx by Monster-Man-08
One of "no more than a hundred" species native to the Yeerk homeworld, the Vanarx specializes in hunting Yeerks, specifically those already within a host body. Yeerks infest and totally control a host (typically the dull-witted, ape-like Gedd) by wrapping around the host's brain, and normally are well enough protected from direct harm; the Vanarx is able to suck a Yeerk clean out of the host's head without having to destroy or digest the host. This has earned the Vanarx the moniker "Yeerkbane."

Visser Three acquired the Vanarx morph to deal with unruly underlings whose hosts he would like unharmed. He has used it on at least one occasion, and had said occasion video taped to show any subordinates that dared step out of line.

I personally imagined the heads more like anteaters with long lips.

their sucker mouths must have a phasing ability since it sucks out the yeerks in the hosts without killing the hosts, that is terrifying for the poor Yeerks, the Vanarx are still cool aliens.

That seems like an extremely specialized ecological role.

This creature's existence begs the following question to be asked: And the Andalites haven't tried to train/harvest these critters as a possible biological weapon to use in their war against the Yerks WHY?

You know, I wonder why the animorphs didn't try to bargain with the elemenist for a chance to acquire the Vanarx.It would allow them to literally eat yeerks for breakfast.

I suspect it also sucks bits of the brain out.
