A student made a blend, in French, of the words for ferocious and voracious, which came out as something like virocious in English. A blend of voracious, virulent and ferocious.
Gooseberry sawfly larvae are virocious leaf feeders feeding from April onwards.

Obviously, the idea of this was to make a small, fearocious looking thing that would look generally creepy.
Participants are sure to get excited towards the finish as they slide under a fearocious giant Gorilla and slide alongside a long python.
