Jackalopes are small furry creatures with large hind legs, floppy ears and small sharp antlers. They range in color from a sandy blond to a bright white and often have spots or off color patches.
Jackalopes are common in all known seas except for the Sea of Statues and the Jade Sea. They are extremely common in the Azorian Kingdom. A variant known as the Snowhorn Jackalope is common on the Icemer in the White Sea. They can be found in just about every biome in the seas they call home but prefer wide open places, and often avoid cities and villages.
Physiology and Behavior Edit
Jackalopes live in small nests, just at or slightly below ground level. They use their small but sharp horns to ward off predators. Males use their antlers to joust as a display for mates.
