Post your own custom species in this topic after you've filled in a form and it has been approved of by the mods/admins. They will be formatted by the mods so everything looks uniform.
Be creative while creating your species!

Mass hounds


Anatomy traits:
Mass Hounds have six eyes, three on each side of their heads. The eyes are usually green of colour and have ‘split’ pupils, meaning it’s like an o with iris in the centre of it and they can move separately (further explanation will come in the reference sheet). The eyes aren’t all equally large, the one closest to the brain is the biggest, the one closest to its snout is the smallest. They have four nostrils, two on each side of their head. The one closest to their snouts is the largest and functions best for the ‘general scents’ like where something is coming from and those kind of things. The smaller nostrils are better at picking up small differences between the scents and are better at tracking. The combination of the both make a very good smell-sense.
Their mouths are filled with a total of eight teeth and no larger dentals. The four biggest teeth are tusks that don’t fit in their mouths but are positioned like the teeth of a sabretooth tiger. Then three’s four in the middle of their mouths, two in the upper side of the jaws, to on the lower half. These function as teeth that rip pieces from of meat and root vegetables for the Mass Hounds to eat.

Ears:
These are categorized individually because there is something special about their ears. Mass Hounds have split ears with three different kinds of tissue and fur/skin. The main piece of the ear consist of the regular tough skin on a Mass Hound’s body and is covered in fur. The smaller piece that is next to is, is sensitive skin without fur on it. These two pieces are connected by a third kind of tissue that ‘leak’ a strong smelling liquid. This liquid smells incredibly bad to most anthros and other feral species but it’s filled with pheromones for both marking territory as for attracting members of the opposite sex.
 
Torso:
Mass Hounds are stocky and bulky, kind of boar-like. They have a lot of muscles and are incredibly strong. They’re able to smash their enemies against rocks and trees and crush them against the ground with their high weight and strength. Their fur is thick and their skin is tough and hard to pierce.
 
Limbs:
Mass Hounds walk on four legs. Their hind legs are strong and good for making long jumps and dealing strong kicks. The feet on the hind legs are almost canine-like with sharp claws and three toes. The front legs are less strong and are structured slightly differently than the hind legs. The feet are hooves with two toes and aren’t covered by the thick fur that covers the rest of a Mass Hound’s body.
 
Tail:
A Mass Hound’s tail is surprisingly soft in comparison to the rest of its fur. The tail is short and stubby and doesn’t really have a function but it is highly wanted as a fur to make clothing out of.
 
Movement:
Mass Hounds usually are pretty slow creatures. They don’t run a lot and often are found searching for root vegetables. Sometimes you will find a herd hunting down some other creature to get some meat. They can make short but incredibly high-velocity sprints and in those sprints they usually outrun most other species, including the anthros. In case you are in danger of being attacked by a Mass Hound, be sure to stay calm and collected. Don’t make any sudden movements and especially don’t run from them. It’ll only provoke anger and they will attack you. Instead, move away slowly and make sure you keep facing them.
 
Males/females:
The only real difference between a male and a female is size. The males are larger than the females because they have to protect their territory.
 
Behavioural traits:
Domesticated:
One will not quickly find a domesticated Mass Hound. They are difficult to capture and hard to keep alive in a cage or closed off area. They have a balanced diet that is hard to copy and without that diet they are prone to disease and predators. However, if they are domesticated they will function as a very good guard-creature.
 
Wild:
Mass Hounds are aggressive and territorial when they’re free and in the untamed land. They will often hoard together to hunt and gather food, even though they’re solitary creatures. They live on their own and max in groups of three where there is one male and two females. When a male impregnates a female he will stay with her until the young is fully grown. The young usually is grown after two years and will be able to take care of itself after that without the help of its parents.
The new adults will usually try to stay together in a bigger group and later on spread away on their own, just to make sure they are able to get enough food to survive and to train hunting and fighting together. Sometimes when a fight breaks out in a group a few members die but it’s a case of natural selection where the strongest survive.
 
Prey/predator relations:
Mass Hounds are both predator and prey. They hunt together in small groups of about six to seven members to take down the bigger preys by circling them and attacking them with their teeth and hooves. When a Mass Hound is hunting alone it will usually go for the smaller species like Land Crawlers and Sinkers. These aren’t too hard to catch on your own. Apart from the hunting they do a lot of looking for root vegetables as well. They mostly eat beetroots and foods like that, but sometimes it will even go for berries and other fruits.
Their predators are any stronger, larger meat eaters, really. There’s not really a way to hide for them except in small caves seeing as a Mass Hound isn’t small itself either.
 
Habitat:
Mass Hounds live in bare, fairly rough climates and landscapes. They are very well resistant against strong winds and sandstorms because of their thick and sturdy fur and tough skin. They live in places without many trees. Instead their habitats usually have low-to-the-ground vegetation and are rich with beets and other root vegetables.
Mass Hounds can resist extreme temperatures and can live in blizzards and heatwaves. It does affect their body functions but not by a lot. Mass Hounds are usually found close to a small water source with a bit more vegetation and wildlife so they can scavenge and hunt when they need to and have fresh water to drink.
 
Lifespan:
The average Mass Hound lives for about fifteen to sixteen years, a fairly short life for an animal that size and strength. However, this is because when they are around fourteen years old, their body starts to deteriorate quickly and the aging process speeds up exponentially. There are exceptions when the living conditions have been ideal. If that has been the case the animal can live up to twenty two years.

The Nu'zar Tribe


Anatomy traits:
The Nu'zar people appear to be canines, but also have distinct aquatic characteristics like fins and slick fur. Their fur colors vary greatly, though typically lean more towards natural colors of the ocean as natural camouflage. Most have unique markings on their faces or bodies, and the thin fins on their heads resemble hair. Each have unique fin placements and sizes.

Behavioural traits:
The Nu'zar are a tribal, pack-like species that heavily rely on each other for survival. A group of elders oversee each village, and a handful of spiritual leaders with extraordinary powers are elected to protect and guide the villages of Nuzil. These rare and powerful individuals are known as shamans. With a simple hunter-gatherer system in place, the village is divided into multiple sets of tasks. Hunters stalk prey and bring home meat, scavengers find vegetation on land or in the oceans and plant/harvest them, while artisans craft tools and build structures/buildings for the community. As tokens of achievement or identity, the Nu'zar people decorate their bodies with elaborate tattoos and markings that emphasize their professions or feats of strength.

Prey/predator relations:
Primarily predators, the Nu'zar people hunt for fish along their island reefs. They sometimes hunt for prey on land, though with such little dry land it is rare to come across such delicacies. The Nu'zar also gather fruits and vegetables for additional nutrients, but it isn't necessary in their diet.

Habitat:
The planet Nuzil consists mostly of water, with thousands of very small islands dotting the globe. These islands provide the Nu'zar tribe with a safe haven from oceanic predators. The tribe primarily lives on land, though have been known to create small communities on the ocean's surface.


Lifespan:
The average Nu'zar life span varies greatly, though the oldest recorded age was ninety-three standard years. This is a miraculously long natural lifespan considering the Nu'zar have very primitive technology and medicine. They are a very resilient people, known to have dynamic immune systems that quickly adapt to infections and fight them off.
