Pelagoose by SOFASTRANGLER Pelagoose by SOFASTRANGLER
Pelagoose is a animal from my Fabletorch project you can visit here: sofastrangler.deviantart.com/g…

The Pelagoose is a formidable creature very similar to a whale, but with two big breeding holes on its back. 6 eyes, 6 legs and no tail. It is neither a mammal either, it has evolved from birds and therefore lays eggs. It is a peaceful creature that feed on tiny small animals and some types of sea weed. It uses its 6 fins as it is in deep water and eats small microbes and fish, but prefers shallow water where it will use its nails to stand in one place and move more effortless. It resides near the Island of Jakaiar, and it is punishable by death to hurt or kill these animals. It is used as a fishing source for the people of the island since it attracts larger fish than it eats and some larger birds and other creatures. As some kind of payback the people of Jakaiar treat them well, wash them and clears out eventual parasites and other creatures that will try to take its home on the giant animal.

(I also added a human for scale BTW!)

Oh i like the concept. Do they have any qualities that poachers may seek them out for?

Well, they got these huge ass claws on their fins they use to grab on to the ground below them like a hippo in water, tho poaching would not be as lucrative because in Jakaiar culture the Pelagoose are cherished and almost holy creatures. Hurting them are punishable by death, much like it was punishable by death to hurt a dolphins in ancient greece.

But it is a great idea, and something I could toy regarding other nations and cultures that may want to dip into Jakaiar's ecological diversity.
