A senrast is squamous beast and light reflects back from its scales in a rainbow of hues. It has six legs and rotating clumps of ears. A mound rises toward the front of its skull with double slits that are noses. It has a raspy breath and it uses the sound of its own breathing as a sort of echolocation. It has a diamond-hard tongue which it uses to thrust through and impale its prey.
A senrast is a very dangerous subterranean creature who is blind but navigates via its hearing. Consequently, a deaf senrast would be particularly handicapped, and so addressing someone as being as unaware as a deaf senrast is made even more insulting. This is a saying that is not uncommonly used among the various Martian tribes, variations of it having been found even among several Galbran tribes—though their usage of the phrase tends to be modified to the vulgar.
A six-legged beast with large tusks that burrows into the sands. Its eyes sit on stalks atop its head so it can peer out of the sands, everything else being completely covered.
When its prey comes near it leaps out and gores them with its tusks and gnaws on the bodies. It also often chases away smaller predators and takes their carrion.
The snetch is a furry beast which grows up to three feet long in extreme cases. It feeds upon adders and skelk, and is apparently immune to the adder’s poison. For this reason, it is considered good luck to see a snetch, for they help clear the area of poisonous snakes.
However, their pelts are also useful and utilized for clothing and blankets. The snetch are not generally dangerous to humans.
This refers to a pile of hobranx feces, and the hobranx does leave behind prodigious piles of dung. This phrase is often used to refer to an assertion of dubious truth or sometimes to a product of poor quality. The picture above depicts a Galbran warrior standing near a pile of hobranx dung in order to illustrate the common size of a hobranx pile.
The nethratu is a rarely seen creature that dwells in the depths of Mars. It has chameleon-like qualities that allow it to blend in with its surroundings. It takes samples of the local colorations with tendrils that extend from its feet.
It possesses a thorny hide and whip-like appendages that are capable of slicing its prey asunder. Once it captures its prey, it attaches with various tendrils that grow from its hide or hands and sucks the innards out for nourishment.
There are some reports of animal shamans being able to control and employ this creature for their own purposes or for their tribe.
