Moyals

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Moyals possess incredibly durable claws, similar in composition to a Stonebeak's bill.

Biological Traits

Moyals are large quadrupedal mammals that can range in size but are always comparable to a cow or bull in size and mass.

Genetics and Reproduction

The species is socially similar to ants, with many males and one/two queen/s. The reclusive nature of the queen Moyal leaves fertilization and birth a mystery, it is well possible that the Moyals are monotremes.

Ecology and Habitats

Moyals dwell in rocky mineral rich dry biomes. Grounds with weak structural integrity are avoided by Moyals.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Moyal's depend heavily on good sources of iron, sodium and calcium. Domesticated Moyals are often malnourished due to poor mineral intake.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Moyals are found all of the Stonelands but nests and queens are found only within the Stone-Sun cliffs.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Moyal's have exceptional senses of smell and a superfine sense of pseudo-hearing. Moyal's have been able to distinguish where different minerals are based on both scent, and density. By tapping on certain parts of stone, they can gain a general sense of direction to denser or lighter minerals. While the method of detection uses a mechanism similar to hearing, Moyals have a separate sense of hearing that they use to listen for communication and detection of prey.
