Appearance

This creature is known by several names. "Tatanka", "Hippallo", "Buffapotomus", "Space Cow", "Whatabeast", and "Larry". It is a hoofed quadruped, very similar to an Earth cow or horse internally.

The hide of the juvenile creature is thick and covered in soft fuzz.1. It has a head that resembles that of an extinct creature from Earth known as a hippopotamus, or "hippo", and a body that resembles that of another Earth creature known as a Buffalo.

The only living example of this creature observed has been a juvenile.

Traits

  • The creature is a ruminant. It has several stomachs meant for consuming grass and other plants.
  • One juvenile creature, properly dressed and butchered, will provide 500 man-days of food.
  • The juvenile creature is mostly docile, unless crowded. At which point it becomes aggressive. It will attack by rearing up and striking with its forelegs.
  • While it was not witnessed visually, audible evidence of a battle between an adult creature and a swarm of Clickers was observed in the night of day 8 (For Alpha1 drop)/day 1 (for Alpha2 drop). The only evidence remaining was a very large pool of blood. It is believed the blood of the creature could induce a feeding frenzy state in clickers. This has yet to be tested.
