Silent as the night
While the Zhushe is strikingly similar to a different species residing in the Thousand Peaks Range, it is different too. At least the Tianlong can feel the cold ground beneath it. The Zhushe, on the contrary, has never felt the embrace of its native land.The Zhushe is one of the major species of the Salt Plains. It mainly preys on the Kava Gliding Rat, and lives in the canopy of the Kava forest. It is occasionally predated on by the Turrim Hawk.
Anatomy & Morphology
- Vestigal back limbs are still found on the Zhushe's body
- Two, larger functional lungs are present, opposed to one in an Earth snake
- Zhushe eyes have eyelids, while Earth snakes have none
Dietary Needs and Habits
Kava Gliding Rat bad. They eat our nests. They eat our grain. They eat our young. Zhushe good. They eat the rats.The Zhushe eats exclusively rats, creeping up silently and ambushing them with its venom. It slithers relatively fast and is rather territorial. It hisses at any that dare intrude within its territory, and sometimes makes those brave enough to stay dietary supplements.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
As with much of the species of Clara, hearing is key for survival. Not only does the Zhushe have an incredible sense of hearing, but also, it moves in near-utter silence, allowing it to stalk and kill prey with ease. However, its sense of sight and smell are below average, making it weak against attacks from the sky.
