Unlike some similar species, gangurru hatchlings are born with seemingly limitless energy, ready to run and jump all day long. Even the most active of gangurru adults have trouble keeping up with their hyper young, but adolescent gangurru have a habit of finding trouble. Most times, young gangurru are quick enough to escape any danger they've found themselves in, but every youngling is taught to go out in a group. If one gets cornered, its friends can run and hop in every direction, criss-crossing, and creating a confusing display of bright colors that usually is enough to scare off a predator, or at least delay it long enough for adults to arrive.

Possessing no magical powers, instead gangurru have developed very muscular, agile bodies and powerful legs to survive the grass plains of Foenara. They can grow up to ten feet tall and are hard to miss in the open plains. Instead of a camouflage covering, they are born with bright coats and even brighter designs on their bodies. As they grow, these designs begin to fade, but gangurru have become adept at creating vibrant dyes which they use to paint over their faded markings. Gangurru are extremely competitive creatures, and have races, high jumps, and obstacle course races for special privileges within the group, such as first choice of foods, the shadiest resting spots, and extra grooming and painting attention. Veterans will participate in these competitions to determine leadership within the group. Before such a competition, gangurru may spend hours with their close relatives touching up the paint on their bodies, adding to the designs and creating intricate swirls. Some say there is a story to be told within the intricate designs painted on a gangurru, and with each day there may be a new stroke added, a new story to tell.
