Two notional dungeon monsters
I played D&D for a while in college, but I didn't love the game enough to really pursue it.

However, I did invent a couple of monsters.

Medium-sized feline creatures who grow chain mail as their pelts. I imagine it as strings of links rather than as a cat-sized jerkin. The cats are valuable but hard to kill, especially in groups. Now that I think about it, they have to be stronger than the default fuzzy feline because they're carrying more weight. The well-defended kittens are especially valuable because their small chain-mail can be used for gloves. This creature is the chain mail lynx.

The other is the mozzarella monster. A wandering blob with a self-generated whip that constricts and burns. There's also a limburger variant with a breath weapon.

I like both of those. Particularly the second one!

Those are very much in the spirit of early D&D fandom. I could easily imagine those being published in Chaosium's old All the World's Monsters collections (which included a monster that was a giant floating musical eyeball, called the Wandering Minstrel Eye).

No doubt, it's a relative of the Beholder. And yep, definitely in the spirit of the early fandom.
