Blrg

The blrg of Clastos was named after the sound it's discoverer made upon finding it - BLRG!!.  These small creatures slowly crawl through the mud on their six tentacles.  They must stay moist to survive, but rarely submerge themselves in water.

Lumapede

Lumapedes tend to only come out at night, using their bio-luminescent head lamp to light their way.  Their front legs have adapted into grabbing forelimbs, enabling them to gather the small plants and moss that makes up their diets.  Their spikes are merely visual deterrents, as they break easily and offer no real protection.

Furdane

The furdane is loosely related to the sundane.  It lives in the grasslands and forests of Proto.  They live in large groups gathering food most of the day.  The growth on their head is used to project their calls to distant groups of furdane.  They have quills running down their sides that they can raise to discourage predator's attacks.

Coraphi

Coraphi are the playful swimmers of Yla.  They are agile and fast, able to outrun any predators that are hunting them.  They also like to toy with their attackers - often frustrating them to the point that they give up.  Coraphi themselves feed off of the coral at the bottom of the ocean.

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.
