Fun Facts About Your Species

Lover of Beasty Baes
- Lemurs will sometimes snack on millipedes and get high off of the toxins they produce.
- In order to win over mates, male ring-tailed lemurs will engage in "stink fights", a display of competition where the lemurs rub their scent over their tails and wave it toward their opponents.
- In lemur groups (also known as "troops"), the females are the dominant sex.
When you have stupid boys throwing stink at each other, yea. I can see why the last fact is true.

-phoenix have magical healing properties, and their tears are useful for that as well.

High functioning everything...most days.
1. Gergrea Drakes have highly chromataphoric skin and feathers. Even uses individual feather muscles to break up and adjust visual texture and help break up outline much in the same manner cuttlefish do. There are even muscles along the rachis to control each feather barb.
2. Sometimes their mood or internal thoughts can cause a very blink-and-you’ll-miss-it brief flush of color to spread across their feathers.
3. Has a double suspension gait.
4. Uses their fore and hind talons much in the same way as parrots do.
5. Has a wide variety of feathers on their bodies. Somw of which are 8-12” venomous barbs.
6. Their bite is venomous as well and they’ve been known to coat their talons by licking them.
7. Venom is primarily a cocktail of neurotoxins of both Presynaptic, and Postsynaptic and includes Paradoxin, Oxylepitoxin-1, alpha-oxytoxin-1, alpha-scutoxin-1 and others not identified that take effect immediately. A painful tingling is felt at the injection site followed by a spreading numbness as the body’s nervous system is slowly dissolved. Death occurs within 10-20 minutes in a 6’, 200 Lb person. Usually by cardiac cessation, respiratory cessation, or the brain no longer being connected to the rest of the body due to liquefaction of the CNS (antidote is available but does no good if not administered within 2-4 minutes of a bite or impalement.).
The average quantity of venom delivered by this species is 77mg and the maximum dose recorded is 440 mg.
The median lethal dose (LD50), subcutaneous (the most applicable to actual bites) for mice is 0.01 mg/kg (0.008 mg/kg subcutaneous, in bovine serum albumin)

8. Has minor telepathic abilities
9. Can turn ethereal and fog-like.
10. Coffee is a dangerously addictive and debilitating substance for them.
11.
There are only two creatures that they can’t overcome without great difficulty
A: Giant Perentie-Hounds: Are immune to their venom and telepathy. They can’t seem to be fooled by their blending in and disguise abilities as well. Bites by These rather large lizard-dogs have been observed to cause severe localized swelling within minutes, localized disruption of blood clotting, and excruciatingly painful, shooting pain which can often last for several hours. Though slower they are relentless and the sport of Gergrea Hunting often uses packs of these creatures to harry the creature to exhaustion.
B: Of even greater fear and concern is the
Queen Brown Manticore: They are immune to their venom as well. Stings from them cause Considerable pain, swelling, and tissue damage. The main toxic agents of Queen Brown Manticore venom attack the muscles and kidney cells. Nonspecific symptoms of poisoning are common and include nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, generalized sweating, headache and Impaired clotting. Symptoms of late stage envenomation includes general necrosis, general or systemic organ failure, nephrotoxicity from the build up of dead tissue cells in the kidneys and eventual kidney failure, as well as spreading, generalized muscle damage include muscle pain, weakness and increasing rigidity. It also weakens the body’s immune system to the venom and can temporarily disrupt or permanently destroy olfactory, retinal, and olfactory sensors. Symptoms will appear within 24 hours, and can be reversed if treated within 3 days with follow-ups for months possibly years afterwards. If left untreated after 3 days it is too late. Death occurs in 5-10 days.

An absoultely trustworthy fox. Trust me.
Foxes are one of the most widespread species on earth
They have one of the most varied range of vocal expressions out of all animals
Contrary to popular opinion they are omnivorous, rather than carnivorous
And they are fricking adorable. End of essay ;)
 

VeeStars

uh I can explain?
  1. Jolteon, along with other 'eeveelutions' have vulpine, feline, and canine influences. They also take some traits from rabbits and racoons!
  2. 'Eon', like in the end of Jolteon and other eeveelutions, means a very very long time. That's why they are named like that! For example, Jolteon means a jolt over an eon, which means that over a long time, Eevee evolved (the real life kind not the pokemon kind) into something that can make jolts!
  3. Eeveelutions are cutest.
  4. Jolteon are good bois :3
