The Calamander are small creatures known for kleptophillic tendencies.

Physiology & Ecology[edit]

There are three types, a small amphibious drone male, a very fierce protector, and a large female which is rarely met. Calamanders burrow beneath the ice and snow to build large warrens and wide-ranging labyrinths. Far back in the tunnels is a female which bears the young. She is attended by a number of drone males who serve her needs, keeping her fed and comfortable. The protector is a separate sex, and is distinguished by a fierce disposition. Calamanders are scavengers, and will steal small items, especially shiny or glittery things. They can be expected to take important nuts or bits from a ATV, or small weapons, if they can find them, storing them deep within their warrens. The protector calamander will be expected to defend its warren to the death, and 30 other protectors will come to its aid. They will also definitely have an advantage within the confines of their own warrens. These warrens can also be expected to contain other objects of interest stolen from previous explorers or expeditions.
