Crocfin

As reptiles slowly took over the land of Zilla III, one large predator made its way back to the sea - the Crocfin.  A crocfin can use its fins to crawl on land, but it is much better suited to life in the water.  Though large and formidable looking, it largely eats vegetation in the sea.

Bircron

Bicron live exclusively in two member groups in the deserts of Nymo.  They rely on each other for everything, to the point that within days of one of them dying, for any reason, the survivor will pass as well.  There is a gathering once every decade in which the pairs are formed.  There is no discernible criteria for the pairing, but once the pair has been formed, it cannot be broken for the next decade.

Mullet Fish

Mullet fish are all business up front.  The animal's eyes sit below it's large mouth that is able to hinge open to consumer relatively large prey.  The eyes sitting low allow it to track it's meal while it's mouth is wide open.

Sdrst

Sdrst are ferocious land predators that hunt the grasslands of Jeol III.  Their large bushy tail is covered in sensitive fibers that can sense movement from several yards away.  They hunt in packs, even though they are not overly social animals otherwise.

Sroll


Sroll are very social, docile animals.  They can survive for an extremely long time without water, which allows them to navigate the large deserts of Florn V.  Their tails have an air sac at the end which they inflate to welcome members of other groups.

Amfish


Amfish are amphibians that spend nearly all of their time in the water.  Though they are able to survive on land for a brief time, but they just don't like to.  There's nothing of much interest for them on land...other than the semi-annual blooming of the kradazian flower.  The flower's petals are a delicacy to the amfish.

Reederi


Reederi are often hard to find as their stripes help them hide in the reeds on Riguz VI.  They can run at amazing speeds with their long limbs.  Their sleek, hairless bodies are often startling to see, and their calls are low and eerie.

Fison


Proto IV is the home to a very large group of mammals known as fisons.  They are semi-aquatic animals, and have developed vents on the sides of their heads which act like gills when they are submerged.  Their size requires a lot of grazing on the plants that grow in the mud near, and in, the plentiful lakes on the planet.

Flootbeaq


The flootbeaq uses its chambered beak to whistle loud calls to fellow birds.  Being ground dwelling birds, they are vulnerable to attacks from predators.  It's essential that they can warn one another to find cover.  From our studies, it seems like different notes have specific meanings that all flootbeaqs know.

Reptasoar


When the reptasoar was first discovered, it was believed that the flaps on its arms were wings.  We have since come to learn that the flaps of skin have many blood vessels through them and serve as a body temperature regulation system.  The twin stars of Yla are vastly different distances from the planet, which makes the day/night cycle much more volatile than on Earth.  Because of this, their eyesight has developed to be extremely clear in all levels of light.
