Blue tortree

Entering the palace of Marian, I couldn't don't notice the blue turtle-like animal, with a kind of blue tree on its back. It was huge, almost as a small cow, what indicated its age: very old. It seemed that in that place everything was faded to live fpr centuries.   --Sirius, the Silver, in The Mariannes

Basic Information


The blue tortree, such as other tortrees, are small shelled animals with a tree-like structure on their back.   They have 6 feet, an arrow head withou ears and a smal twisted tail, all coming from the shell.   The "tree" on their back is a structure with many purposes, such as generating energy, camouflage and regulating body temperature. In the case os blu tortrees, this structure is blue.

Biological Traits

The female tortrees tend to be bigger than male. It's trees may also be fuller.   The male and female have different flowers on their trees. While females have large orange ones, males can present a huge variety of them, with different colors and shapes. It has to do with reproduction rituals.

Genetics and Reproduction

A couple mates once a year, and then eggs are laid into the earth. The "tree" starts to break the shell before the egg hatches, and help the baby grow. After 100 days, the babies break their eggs and spread.

Growth Rate & Stages

The blue tortree takes 2 years to become an adult, but grows indefinitely. Until that point, the body grows more, when comparing to the tree. After the 2 years the tree grows faster, what gives the body enough resources to grow more.

Ecology and Habitats

The tortree can live anywhere if there is a rich soil and enough sunlight. Usually found in tropical forests, specially in the continent of Eirlang, where the species is native from.

Dietary Needs and Habits

The tortree can get all it's energy through photosynthetic processes with its tree. If there is more food available, the tree will grow, and so the body of the creature.   The tortree usually eats plants, fruits and roots.
Conservation Status
Not endangered, yet rare.
