LAND ANIMALS

A long descendent of the quadisiss, the short haired Aloff is a cat-like creature. The Aloff makes its home in the coastal regions of Fe-o-tus. Here it feeds off a variety of birds and fish. This creature has extremely fast reflexes and an uncanny leaping ability. This slender (two feet tall when standing on all four legs) animal comes equipped with upper canines that have drastically increased in length to become stabbing weapons. It also has a long tail and long retractable claws. 

A distant relative of the Aloff is the Palla. This animal makes its home in the tropical forest of Fe-o-tus. The tropical forest are abundant in many different types of vegetation. This is what makes it a perfect home to the Palla. You see, the Palla is a herbivore. It makes its meals from the ripened fallen fruits of the Great Forest. This animal is short and pudgy with short legs. Its ears are large and movable which allow it to hear fruit falling from the trees. this animal may seem cute and cuddly, however like its cousin the Aloff, it also has large retractable claws.

The Mountain Aloff is very similar to its relative the Aloff. However, they still have their differences. For one, due to the colder climate of the mountain region, the Mountain Aloff's coat is longer and more like fur than hair. It also has large ears to hear predators. In the mountains of Fe-o-tus, the Aloff feeds on rabbits and other small rodents.

 

The Rockster is an animal that resides in the beautiful rain forest of Fe-o-tus. This animal has a rock-like exterior. This protects it from potential predators. This animal is small in stature, weighing approximately five pounds when fully mature. This animal eats small fish and eggs it finds in the stream. Its rock-like exterior acts as camouflage, due to its slow moving manner. Although it breaths air, it can stay under water for up to twenty minutes. This is done by slowing its respiratory system down and not moving once finding a feeding ground. The Rockster is a descendent of the Lifttisiss.

Millions of years ago when food became very scarce because of the Great Drought, the Rockster traveled to find food. many traveled towards the shore while others traveled to the mountains. The Rocksters that went towards the sea eventually evolved into the Trackers. The Trackers were faster moving and could swim well in the ocean waters. On the other hand, it could not stay under water as long. It therefore, grew longer limbs, including a neck. However, it still had a hard exterior it could tuck into when it was in danger. After feeding the Tracker would make its home upon the rock of the shore.

The Rocksters that migrated to the mountains were eventually known as the Eggers. The Eggers made their homes in the open meadows of the mountains. They remain almost motionless until small animals and birds came near. Their egg shape is very valuable because small rodents and birds believe it to be lunch, however they are the ones that eventually become lunch. 

 

The Hopper enjoys living in its perfectly fit niche in the mountains of Fe-o-tus. This animal stands upright and has short arms with paws at the end of them. This animal came out of the lakes as a morphed version of the Multi-sporisiss. As this animal has no actual natural defenses, its hopping at a great speed allows it to live and see another day. the paws attached to the short limbs allows it to reach maximum speed and almost seems to run on all four. This again is paradise for the Hopper because of the abundance of small shrubs and bushes that it eats.

The Hopper was able to adapt to the rain forest region due to it growing finger-like extensions from its paws. This enabled it to jump and grab fruits and leaves from taller trees. It also allowed for it to grasp on to tree branches when being chased by predators. The Treehopper is about five feet tall when standing upright. It has a pig-like snout with one eye on each side of its head.

A distant cousin of the Treehopper is the Coastalhopper. The Coastalhopper is the only known omnivore hopper. It has a sweet tooth for fish. It will hang around shallow deltas and spot a fish. it will then hop from about twenty feet out to catch it an swim back in. As you can probably tell the Coastalhopper has bird-like sight. With its big eye in the middle of its forehead it can spot a fish from up to fifty feet. The hopper is about half the size of its cousins. It does its best fishing in the early mornings.
