four-legged haeratchin looks somewhat like hyena with coarse fur, a thick
mane along its neck and back, and a short tasseled tail. They stand about
3 feet at the shoulder, and weigh up to 180 pounds. Their usual habitat
is semi-arid regions and grasslands, where they hunt or scavenge at night.
live together in packs where the female is at the top of the hierarchy.
Mating can take place at any time of the year, and there is surprisingly
little fighting among males for a female in season. Usually, a male tries
to impress a female and if she is interested, then she'll accept; if not,
then she'll ignore him. Gestation lasts about three months, and the usual
litter size is two.
ratchin looks somewhat like a dog or hyena with coarse fur, a mane along
its neck and back, and a short tasseled tail. It walks upright and stands
about 4 feet tall. Their usual habitat is rocky, semi-arid regions, where
they spend the hot part of the day holed up in their dens. Their favorite
food is small rodents, hares, and lizards.
mating season starts when winter does. Several males may fight for an unmated
female, but once bonded, a male and female ratchin may stay together for
life, both helping in the rearing of the young. Three to five cubs are
born after a gestation of three months, in the beginning of spring. Parent
ratchins are fiercely territorial and protective of their young, sometimes
attacking creatures up to twice their size.
rynx looks somewhat like a pale leopard with a long muzzle. They are muscular,
four-legged animals that stand about 2 1/2 feet at the shoulder and weigh
about 100-150 pounds. They live in tropical woodlands, spending much of
their time in the trees. Their preferred prey are large birds (such as
the didderbong), frogs, and snakes.
can take place at any time of the year. The dominant male in an area has
rights to all females whose territories overlap his. After a gestation
of eighty days, the female gives birth to two or three cubs, whom she alone
rears for the next two years.
yaergden is a bear-like animal with a bad additude. They are large, standing
about 5 feet at the shoulder (when on all fours) and weighing up to 1500
pounds. Their preferred habitat is deciduous and coniferous forests with
grassy meadows nearby. They are omnivorous, feeding on plants and berries
as well as animals.
the autumn months, yaergden are busy fattening up for their long winter
sleep. Mating also takes place in autumn. Yaergden are polygamous, with
females usually picking the older and more experienced males to mate with.
In the winter in the seclusion of her den, after a gestation of four months,
the female gives birth to two or three cubs, whom she alone rears for the
next two years.
didderbong is a four-legged, flightless bird that lives in the trees of
the rainforest. To avoid being eaten by the rynx, of which they are a favorite
prey, they live in flocks, each one providing a lookout for everyone else.
Adult didderbong are 2 feet at the shoulder, 7 feet long from head to tail
(one third of this length being tail), and weigh on average 60-70 pounds.
Didderbong are amazing jumpers, leaping from tree to tree in search of
their favorite food, fruits and nuts.
didderbong are showier than their female counterparts, and use their "good
looks" to impress as many females as possible during the mating season,
which starts in early spring. In late spring, the females leave the flock
to lay their eggs and raise the young on their own. When the young are
old enough to run amongst the trees with the adults, their mother introduces
them to the flock.
are animal-like plants that live in the ocean. A large flap on a surface-
skimmer's back serves as a giant leaf that takes in energy from the sun
as it skims along the surface of the water during the day. When threatened,
a surface-skimmer can swim away quickly with its fish tail or snap with
its toothless dolphin beak. If not preyed upon, a surface-skimmer can live
as long as 500 years.
are many different types of dragons, living in all sorts of places. But
since their progenitors were created by Zurinkel, the fire goddess of the
sun, they are considered fire beings. Dragons are powerful, intelligent
creatures that can be the help or bane of other beings. Dragons are divided
into three major types: Land, Sea, and Winged.
dragons are wingless and flightless. They prefer warm climates, such as
deserts and rainforests, where they sleep in the open. The rare land dragons
who live in cold climates lair in rocky hills.
dragons live in the water, usually the large oceans, but can sometimes
be found in rivers or lakes.
dragons are capable of flying, and often make their lairs high in the mountains
where only flyers can reach.
