Trastask are a species of sapient reptillians from the @strasstra system, known to Humans as the Kepler-22 system. They look almost identical to Humans allowing them to easily pass as Human. Despite this their biology is, obviously very different. Their foreheads have a slight ridge, however it is not that noticeable. Adults have hair-like feathers on their heads. Trastask eat small snacks throughout the day, with most households having a table set up with fruits, vegetables, breads, meats and candies throughout the day, which is often replenished when the supplies get low. Families often live on family estates, yet the adults look after their own children only. Biological sex is determined not by chromosomes, but by temperature whilst in the egg. Bellow 30° offspring are female, between 31° and 33° offspring are androgynous and above 34° offspring are male. Incubation lasts 80 days. Trastask normally form relationships with one member of their preferential gender. They are also the only knwon species which can actually learn whilst sleeping, through what has been described as 'Mental osmosis'
Trastask have two arms and two legs, with 5 digits on each hand and 4 on each foot. The females have a small sack in their lower body which expands during pregnancy to hold the baby.
Genetics and Reproduction
Pregnancies last about 3 months, at which time an egg is formed. These hatch 80 days later.
Growth Rate & Stages
They go through a 3 year developmental phase, a 4 year infancy, a 6 year childhood and a 12 year adolescance.
Ecology and Habitats
They're adapted to live between 25° and 50°
Dietary Needs and Habits
They mostly eat plants, but do also eat meat and fish, which they hunt for themselves.
Before adolescance the species hibernates in winter. During adolescance their hibernation cycle gets messed up as the hibernation hormone turns off and the 'heat' hormone turns on. This causes their body temperature and lebido to rise, however the females and androgynes can become pregnant by males or androgynes of the other genders at any time. This is a vestigal cycle relating to how in the past those born in winter probably wouldn't survive. Androgyne self-impregnation can only happen in the winter. It is unknown how the heat produces body heat in a reptillian species.
Trastask live in a matriachal society, with adult men in relationships with non binarys or women moving in with them (and non binarys moving in with women) They have reasonable family bonds, yet often live in seperate households on their family estates. The older generations normally take part in the education. The whole family normally congregates in the mid afternoon for basking time.
Trastask have two eyes which are often green, brown or hazel. They have average sized noses, rounded ears and large mouths.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
They live all over their stellar system.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
They have average hearing and vision but above average smell and taste.
Civilization and Culture
Females should be strong and able to look after eggs, males should be good at looking afer hatched children. Androgynes should be good at both.
The more dominant gender(s) choos(es) from a line up of members of the less dominant gender(s).
Major Language Groups and Dialects
Tesska, Retish, Kakarete.
Common Dress Code
They like wearing extravegant clothing items.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
The species has good interspecies relations, normally built on an exchange of knowledge.
