Welcome to The Final Outpost!
Breed: Sabla Rego
Age: 10 months
At home in desert scrubs and canyons, Sabla Regos are aggressive, dominant hunters that easily adapt their cooperative hunting strategies to their environment. On steep cliff faces and canyon walls, male Sabla Regos will chase down their prey with their superior climbing skills and then kick and headbutt the quarry until it falls to the waiting pack of females and juveniles below. In flatter desert plains, females will work together to flush out prey into the waiting horns of the males. In order to maintain their massive, ever-growing horns, males will eat not only the meat but also the bones. When feeding, Sabla Regos keep two eyes on their meal and two eyes on their surroundings, never letting down their guard. Hierarchy shifts often within a pack, though males with the largest horns and the most aggressive females tend to become dominant. Their fall mating season is both brief and violent, with males fighting over females sometimes to the death.
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.
