Nawhuls are a species of animal living in the swamp regions of Vivatus.
Around 10cm long, Nawhuls drift slowly through the swamp, their thick hide protecting them from attack. They will bite anything that gets in their way, and attempt to eat it. If they find themselves unable, they will turn to face another direction and begin swimming that way.
They have stubby limbs, and just before mating they will move onto land to find a pool with members of the opposite sex. They reproduce sexually, and offspring are carried on their father's back for the first few weeks of their lives. They grow very slowly, taking a year to reach their full size and living for over twenty years.
