The Greifen- contest entry by coloured-prisms The Greifen- contest entry by coloured-prisms
For :icongriffsnuff: 's finnedyr species contest.

---INFO---

Species-
They are greifens which mean "to grab" or "grip". also called a poncho cat for it's genetic alteration. (see below)

type-
Fire species

Size-
About of a medium sized dog.

Food-
Rodents

habitat- 
they love heat, rocky areas. they like mountains or trees to scale using their claws. if they enter colder areas, their fur genetics change to keep warm.

design- 
designed to be light and agile. colouration is dark for camoflauge and the bioluminescence helps them resemble fire or lava. they have claws for climbing and hands/thumb for grabbing things like food or rocks. Because they need to use their hands, their posture can change to slightly angled bipedal-ism, but not for long. sharp teeth and no tail. Short fur for little insulation unless in colder climate

pattern and variety- 
Bioluminescence can be any shape but can only form on the back and head. (hearts, stripes, spots, squares, etc)
Horns can be any shape and length. can have up to 6 horns.
Ears point forward, but can be any shape, including flopped over their eyes.
Butt fur can be long, or very short.

nesting-
they gather rocks for nests or beds. they are mammalian. 
Males usually fight using their horns and teeth.

genetic disorders-
Their stripes can alternate blue or blue-ish purple.

Aww~ They look so adorable! I especially love the example one with his mouth open. :D

(P.S. Rabbits aren't rodents, by the way. They're Lagomorphs; Leporidae Family to be specific. Slight differences. Common misconception :))
