Summary

Kuniklovs are very strong, sturdy creatures, who can easily thrive in any society. Both their meaty arms and hooved legs are capable of striking with incredible force. Kunis are opportunistic creatures, they will more often than not join already established societies and exploit their resources without giving much in return. They are natural hoarders, having a soft spot for aromatic vegetation and spices and often carry them around with themselves, giving them a very strong odor. Kuniklovs are well known for having Roobite farms.

Baby Information



Baby Kuniklovs are very similar to their adult form, they already sport long horns and very long lopped ears. The ears are so long that most babies wrap them up their heads so they don't trip over them, between this, the horns and how big their heads are it's easy for them to lose balance. They rarely sport a fully grown mane, most having a little chest fluff in this stage, and have no claws on their big squishy hands. Their legs are very skinny in comparison with their arms, it's not uncommon for a baby kuni to walk as a quadruped because of how heavy their upper body is! If they want to run they must switch to this quadrupedal form unless they want to take a tumble. Their tails are very long and heavy, to try and balance the weight of their heads, the size and shape of it may change once they grow.
