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.


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.


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.


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.


Gelclops are gelatinous animals that walk the Florn sea bottoms.  They can squeeze their bodies into any space to escape from predators.  They filter feed through two openings directly below their single eye.


Shaydre live on the open plains of Senti V.  The planet is very close to the star that it orbits, which makes it very easy for the shaydre to burn in the sun.  They've developed a hairy growth on their backs to protect themselves from the rays.  More often than not, you'll find them under the single leaf plants that spot the landscape.
