    Flea, Giant
    CR 1/2 cat-sized fleas...gyeh. Even thinking about them makes me itch. While their blood drain isn't exactly an impressive amount, they can transmit any non-supernatural disease, and they tend to hang out in thick clusters or even huge swarms, so fighting just one giant flea is unlikely. Indeed, even fighting a group of giant fleas alone is unlikely, as they're pretty much always encountered as hitchhikers on giant warm-blooded animals such as dire bears and rocs.

    Fulgurate Mushroom
    A CR 4 hazard, the fulgurate mushroom emits 3d6 electricity damage when you come in contact with it, or 6d6 if it's hit by a cold effect. Not quite sure why this is in the main text, rather than a sidebar or an appendix, but whatever.

    Fungoids are CR 3 Plants which vaguely resemble Swamp Thing and live in groups of 2 to 10 that spend each night roaming miles away from home to find food to bring back to their mushroom-studded lair. What is that food, you might ask?

    Yep. Human and elf: still the "other" other white meats.
