Species' Description~ A quadruped, Moons are very furry animals. Seeing as Shakala, their home, is freezing cold at best, their fur is thick and many-layered, often reaching a foot or more in length. They have a lupine's muzzle, although broader and longer with a rim of fur, just above their upper lips, that is very long to protect their muzzle. Their eyes are usually a deep color and they have three eyelids. One is thin and helps insulate the eye, while not blocking vision; the second is thicker and lens-shaped to lower the eye's spectrum into infrared to see through snow storms by tracking any body heat; and the third is normal, although thicker in comparison to a human's eyelid. They have long, pretty eyelashes to help keep whirling snow out of their eyes and exceedingly long and thick whiskers to feel around with. They are long-legged to help step through drifting snow, and their paws are broad and cushioned. They have a basically canine or lupine body, although the nerves and circulation system have adapted to the freezing environment in which they survive. They have a thick ruff around their necks and tufts of fur at the joints in their legs. Their tail is twice as long as them and pretty much prehensile, although hugely furred. If you stood back and looked, the tail would seem as thick as their furry torso, and can wrap around their body to keep them warm in a bad blizzard. They're omnivores, and can survive for weeks only on snow or ice. Their main food is a certain fruit which grows in ice pockets under the snow; for this they dig. They also hunt the small prey which happens by once in a while, but for a Moon, there is always the danger of starvation. They're very social animals, curling up in large numbers to sleep and rarely going anywhere alone. Warmth is in numbers.
