Fauna on Lamona
The fauna of Lamona is quite diverse; however little is known at this time other than a few animals. Two of the known apex predators are described below.
is one of the most well-known and most feared of the large predatory animals. It lives within the rocks and boulders at the base of the mountains at the edge of the Great Desert, Molhadhi Pashinalo
(lit: Ocean of Sand). Sightings of the toshani are rare and few who have had the unfortunate encounter of this animal have lived to tell about it.
The toshani is a six-legged, diurnal reptile which resembles something you would expect to see if a Spinosaurus
and a Mosasaurus
had offspring, just a little smaller. The largest animal described was approximately 30 to 40 feet in length (a system of measurement has yet to be created). The head is nearly a quarter of its body length. Its teeth are knife-shaped to tear through flesh and bone with ease and has the crushing power equal or greater than that of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. With its six legs, it is very agile and can climb up, down, and around rocks at astonishing speed. Its legs are sprawled, much like that of a crocodile giving it the ability to stay low to the terrain. Its outer skin is scaly and armored and has a pattern of red, orange, and tan pastel colors giving it the perfect camouflage for the rocky terrain.
is another predatory creature which lives within the deep forest of the central part of Lamona. The badu is a pack animal and has similar behavior we see in wolves.
The badu is a hoofed, diurnal, predatory animal that resembles something you would expect to see if a warthog and a wolf had offspring. The badu is about the same size as a bull moose and its legs are similar in length. It has short fur and the colors are very dark which makes it easy to mistake it for wet stone in the dense forest. The legs are black and the body is a charcoal grey. The badu has a black mane, similar to what you see on a mustang stallion. Since it has hooves, the badu must rely on its pack to help hunt and kill their prey. In other words, if you see one badu, chances are there are about five to ten more in the area, depending on the needs of the pack. Its teeth and jaws have developed a similar structure to a wolf; however, the mandibular fangs are long, protruding from the top lip making its snarl quite ferocious. Its tail is short in comparison to its body length; however still long enough to provide balance when needed.
