February Midmonth - Babitanah

Postby GrowlingCupcake » February 15th, 2019, 1:01:24 am

Babitanah (2-shard)

Many animals have impressive tusks, but few are as spectacular as the curled canines of an adult male babitanah. Males use their tusks in combat, rutting with each other to defend their territories and impress onlooking females. The fights can go on for hours, even days, and become quite bloody if neither combatant is willing to back down. While the upper tusks are by far the most noteworthy, growing continually throughout the animal's life and requiring constant grinding to keep from piercing their own skull, they're actually used primarily for self-defense. The upper teeth form a sort of shield between a babitanah and its opponent, while the straight lower teeth form gouging weapons capable of doing considerable damage. A female's tusks are much smaller by comparison, but don't be fooled -- any determined babitanah can make quick work of whatever displeases them with those tusks.

Oh yeah, earth pig
personal zodiac sign is pig, time to suffer
Bets on it being a big huge forest boar

Edit: Well I found a female

Hatched a male and a female — can confirm there's no dimorphism for hatchlings. They're cute ^.^

ooh these are cute! the name & the description makes me wonder if they're based on babirusa at all, though the coloring on the baby makes me think wild boar (one of the stripey ones probably) is more likely.

I think definitely a Babarusa, I remember watching something on animal planet as a kid that said that if a male babirusa lived long enough it might be unfortunate enough to have it's teeth grow and curl into its skull. D:
