The Edo

The edo (Rangifer blancus), is a deer from the planet Poseidon, including both resident and migratory populations. Overall the population is widespread and numerous. The edo varies slightly in color and size, and only males grow antlers.
Hunting of wild reindeer and herding of semi-domesticated reindeer (for meat, hides, antlers, milk and transportation) are important to several Polar tribes and people.

The Snow Rat

The Snow Rat (Potorous blancus) is a species of marsupial living in the Sumiqtunatupiakuq (Ice and Tundra) region of Kamalia (see Kamalia). The first specimen was observed in 2011 and described by Cameron White in 2012, but its camouflage made it difficult to detect. Recent studies indicate that it has a distribution from the permanently frozen ice of King Napik II Land, to the tundras of King Kanaq Land, and possibly as far east as the Lahapuq-Ahaxtuq peninsula.
The habits of the Snow Rat are almost entirely unknown. It is clear that it avoides the fertile forested areas where most Kamalian wildlifew make their home. It is, however, known that it uses the camouflage of its white coat to avoid predators, making Sumiqtunatupiakuq an ideal habitat for the Snow Rat.

The Cuhu

The cuhu (Equus Cuhuae), is a carnivore whose habitat is found along the west coast of Kamalia, adjacent to the Lahapuq-Ahaxtuq penninsula. Its diet consists of squirrels, foxes and other small mammals.

The Poseidon Sea Cow

This aquatic mammal, known taxonomically as Odobenidae blancus,is one of the largest mammals in Poseidon's freshwater ocean, reaching lengths of up to 15 ft. Its diet consists of penguin, algae, and a few small fish.

The Kamalian Squirrel

The Kamalian squirrel is one of the most abundant species on Poseidon. They are also one of the few mammals that reside in the urban areas of central Kamalia.

The Penguin Seal

The penguin seal inhabits many areas of Kamalia's bordering oceans, especially around Sumiqtunatupiakuq. It is just one of the many species of aquatic seal found in Kamalia's waters.

Arctic Pups

This 2 foot tall species of wild dog finds its habitat in Sumiqtunatupiakuq's snow covered tundra where it eats mainly Snow Rats and Kamalian Arctic Hares for food. These creatures travell in large herds with an alphamale and alphafemale leading the pack

White's Squid

These creatures, which bear a striking resemblence to Earth's cephalopods, inhabit Kamalia's southern coast where the water is warmer. The spots that decorate their bodies can change colors ranging from a sky blue, to a mid-purple.

The Kamalian Yak

Possibly the most important form of farmwork on Kamalia is done by these domesticated Yaks. They serve jobs such as pulling vehicles.
