Trundler

Physiology & Ecology[edit]

Trundlers are a domesticated animal.

Trundlers are well-loved, peaceful animals that serve as a combination pet and piece of furniture.

A trundler is shaped like a giant tortoise with a flat, slightly concave shell. The trundler has a small head and ten short, thick legs that can be pulled into the shell. Trundlers do not have tails. The shell, which is three feet or more in diameter, is made of thick bone covered with a soft layer of even thicker skin. Trundlers come in a variety of colors, from bright yellow and green to blue or black. They are attractive creatures.

Trundlers behave much like Terran dogs - they love their masters and enjoy playing and getting attention. They are seldom found in the wild - nearly all trundlers are domestic pets.

They can support several hundred pounds on their shells. Trundler owners pile soft pillows and even small entertainment consoles or computers on their pet and ride around the house. A trundler can walk or stand for hours on end, but prefers to lie down, drawing the head and legs into the shell until its rider orders it to move. They can be trained to go to the phone when it rings, or carry their riders to the refrigerator with a voice command. Trundlers are fair watchdogs.

While their bite is weak(1xd4)(they have small jaws and eat only plants) they can slam into someone to trip him and knock him down.
