Found in well-traveled waterways, Kauri Makzelos spend most of the day with just their eyes and nostrils above water, watching and waiting for prey to come along and ford the rivers they occupy. As their quarry draws near, they will lunge forth and snag it in their mighty maws. Once the grapple is secured, the Kauri Makzelo will swing itself into a rapid corkscrew motion that disorients and mangles the unfortunate victim. If prey manages to escape the initial lunge, Kauri Makzelos will pursue their target into the shallows and even onto land where they put on incredible and surprising bursts of speed. When not on the hunt, Kauri Makzelos spend their time basking in the sun, searching for mates, or rearing young during their brief winter mating season. In stark contrast to the high-pitched calls of the juveniles, adult Kauri Makzelos produce a deep rumble that can be heard for long distances. These calls are used for everything from calling wayward young to signaling mates and territory.

The creatures that dwell in this rather desolate world still display some diversity in appearance, eating habits, and social behavior. Whether they have fur or feathers, skin or scales, their unique genetic makeup allows for a variety of colors and markings within each species. Despite limitations in food sources, herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores are all present in the food chain, and each species requires specialized care within a laboratory. Although the artificial setting of housing units and breeding pods precludes most opportunities to study true interspecific behavior, the interactions within and between species has been studied extensively in the wilderness by scientists daring enough to venture beyond the outpost’s walls.
