The Gunby is a major source of meat protien in Gushemege and other sectors on this trailing side of the Great Rift.

Physiology & Ecology[edit]

The gunby itself is a grazing herbivore of 80-140kg average mass. Gunbies are trifoil hooved and have two pairs of downward pointing sabre teeth which they used to break up the hard and often frozen ground of their native steppe. The gunby has 4 legs but no tail. It resembles a terran boar, but has a woolier coat ( which is often used in Gushemege clothing ). It originally lived in herds of 10 - 20 on the open steppes of Vuyha.
