Sandgrazer

From Multiverses

Jump to: navigation, search

Sandgrazers are a type of medium-sized herbivore from the desert of Vivatus.

Physiology

Up to one metre long, Sandgrazers have segmented, vermian bodies bearing large bristles to assist in moving through the sand. Their mouth contains a cone of baleen-like plates for filtering the sand, trapping algae and the spores of large plants for the animals to eat.

They are relatively slow-moving, with scaly hide and no real defences for Duneworm attack.

Reproduction

These animals reproduce once per year. They are sexual, with the male inserting his sperm into the female. She will then lay a clutch of eggs, which attach themselves with a kind of dry glue to her tail. After around three weeks, they will hatch and use a set of teeth (which later fall off) to cling on to their mother, biting into her blood vessels and feeding off her blood until they grow large enough to feed on their own.
