Myrmeco #907

General

Myrmeco are usually found in the northern climes, where their white fur can help them hide out in the snow and their golden markings can reflect the sun to help blind any predators. Confident in their various protections, myrmeco spend the day ambling around looking for food and inspecting new things within their territories, and the night snoring in burrows. Their heavy fur has a tendency towards mats and clumps, but fortunately it can be shorn off and used to weave popular - and thick - blankets that are often sold at festivals.

Egg

This white egg has a big woolly tail and growls occasionally.

Hatchling

It's fortunate that myrmeco hatchlings are a different colour from their verlinga cousins immediately, as they aren't as friendly and prefer to be left alone. Their coat is so thick and woolly that they need to be groomed frequently - and shorn when old enough - and this can be a day-long event with especially cantankerous myrmeco. When not being coaxed into submission, hatchling myrmeco spend their time hunting down small creatures and inspecting the garbage for especially tasty bits of old meat. The solid white fur of the hatchling myrmeco helps it to blend into the snow of its northern home, which allows its parents to leave it when they need to go out hunting for food.

Adult

An adult myrmeco is about the size of a large dog, with short legs and a heavy body. Although not necessarily aggressive or hateful of people, they aren't particularly affectionate and will bite when threatened - and they do have sharp teeth and sharper claws. Too slow to hunt, they feed on small creatures that they can ambush, and on carrion found while wandering around their territories. Adult myrmeco usually only stay in pairs until hatchlings are grown, and these hatchlings rarely stay with either of their parents, preferring to strike out in search of their own home.
