Jroba

The jroba of Sys towers above most other creatures on the planet.  It's a peaceful creature that stays in rather large groups.  The stripes on its neck help it hide among the long grass of the Sys plains.  They have incredibly strong hind legs, which are able to kill any attacker with a single blow.

Budder

Budders are peculiar creatures.  They grow as columns, with their mouths on the top surface of their bodies.  The mouth has a sweet scented cavity at its center that attracts insects and small birds.  Once the prey gets close, the budder's teeth close in, forcing its meal into the digestive cavity.  Budders reproduce asexually by budding.  Their buds eventually detach, float on the wind, and plant somewhere nearby the parent creature.  There are often large patches of budders found across Clastos.

Kreapur

Ronoh is home to the sneaky kreapur.  This flightless bird towers over the plains in search of carrion.  It can be difficult to know if the original predator is still lingering around it's prey, so the kreapur is always creeping around.  They tend to be solitary, assembling groups only when attacked.

Sundane

A cousin of the floatane, the sandane made its way from the watery edges to the heat of the Proto deserts.  They live in small groups, lounging in the sun to warm their bodies.  The growth on their head has become thin, exposing veins to the sun to regulate their body temperature.  They get their sustenance from eating small desert creatures.

Diger

Digers are subterranean wasp like creatures with stingers on their heads.  The stingers inject a numbing agent that enables the creature to drag its victim into its burrow.  Once there, the digers community encases the victim in webbing, saving for later meals.

Hornam

Hornam are vegetarians through and through.  A group of ten can strip an areas fruit trees in less than a day.  It's a taxing appetite for us to keep up with here at the zoo.  Their horns are hollow, and are actually pressure sensors that help them know when the weather is changing.

Scather

 Scather scutter around the dirt plains of Proto.  They tend to stay in groups, always on the lookout for danger.  The creature almost always have a single fully developed feather on its head, and proto-feathers on its tail.  It's a strange development for a single species to have feathers at different stages of development, but it works well for scathers.

Morstiz

Morstiz roam the plains of Senti V, grazing on whatever vegetation they can find.  They are mostly solitary creatures, joining in groups only when a threat is detected.  Their muscular hind legs can inflict a lot of damage on any attacking predator.

Norbol


Norbol live on the open plains of Lami.  Despite their large tusks and clawed face appendage, they are grazing animals.  The tusks are for defense, and the claw is used to grab grass and bring it up to the animal's mouth so it doesn't have to bend over.  There is a thick hair on the creature's back which reflects the rays of Lami's twin suns, keeping the animal cool.

Slipner

Here we have a slipner from Ronoh.  The planet itself is very muddy, and this creature has adapted to it well.  It can skim the top of the mud without sinking too far in, which makes it quite a fast mover.  It often looks like it is just sliding on the mud.  Slipners use their scoop shaped head to clear any exceptionally large clumps of dirt or debris from their path.
