Slow, but calm, reliable and easy to nurse back to health.
Venira didn't have a proper pack animal for a very long time. By proper is an animal that could survive all of the many dangerous environments that the Venira like, such as mountains and deserts.
That ended when the Xalnans introduced the Lurkogia to the Venira during the golden age. Lurkogia turned out to be able to adapt to the desert and the mountains, assuming the roads were large enough to allow them to get up.
Genetics and Reproduction
Lurkogia mate and lay eggs about once every two years and they lay about 10 eggs the size of two fists each time. Due to the eggs needing warm and humid environments to hatch and also for the young to grow up, the northern jungles have been used as the place where Lurkogias are being bred.
Ecology and Habitats
Given a few days to adapt the Lurkogia can survive almost every climate for a few years before they need to return to the jungles in order to recover.
Dietary Needs and Habits
The Lurkogia prefer fresh meat, but can also live on a omnivorous diet.
If one of these lizards is found in the desert it can also be fed with hey or dried meat, the latter being the preferred method due to the easier transportation. another option is to feed them well before, as they can go without food for about a week at a time without ill effects.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
The Lurkogia are not well known for their sight, but very well known for their good sense of smell. Some have tried to use them as guards, but they are too docile to be effective.
